Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed a bill into law Wednesday creating a permanent mail-in voting system and other reforms that will inevitably increase voter fraud.
The bill passed along party lines in the state Assembly and Senate, both controlled by democrats.
“At a time when state legislatures across the country are attempting to roll back access to the polls, I am so proud that Nevada continues to push forward with proven strategies that make voting more accessible and secure,” Sisolak said in a statement to the Epoch Times.
Sisolak also wrote on Twitter that the new law makes Nevada “the sixth state to adopt a permanent vote-by-mail system.”
Today, alongside State Assembly Speaker @JasonFrierson, I signed groundbreaking legislation to expand voting access in the State of Nevada and increase education funding. I look forward to ceremonial mock signings for these two bills in the near future with more of our partners pic.twitter.com/gJ37cAbcwR

Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah and Washington are the other five states that have existing permanent mail-in-voting systems, in which voters are automatically sent mail-in ballots around election time.
Under the new Nevada law, every registered voter will receive a ballot for all elections unless they opt out by submitting a written notice. It also allows the clerks to verify signatures manually or electronically, and to establish requirements for an electronic device to verify signatures.
If the voter does not put a signature on the ballot or there is a question regarding the signature matching, the voter is allowed to provide a signature or confirmation no later than 5 p.m. on the sixth day after an election.
Additionally, the law allows for same day voter registration.
