There are five seats on the Board of Regents up for election in 2022. The primary election is on June 14 with early voting starting May 28. The primary will narrow the field to two candidates for each race going forward to the general election in November--unless one candidate receives >50% of the vote in primary in which case that candidate is declared elected and there is no general election.
The Nevada Faculty Alliance Political Action Committee (NFA-PAC) sent a questionnaire regarding NSHE and faculty issues to each candidate's email address. Sixteen of the 21 candidates have responded. Candidates' answers to our questions are provided in the documents linked below:
District 6 – southern Clark County
District 7 – western Las Vegas area, Summerlin
District 8 – Elko, Esmeralda, Eureka, Lincoln, Nye, White Pine, and northern Clark
District 11 – North Reno, Sparks, northern Washoe, Humboldt, Pershing District 13 (updated 5/20)– western Las Vegas area, Red Rock Canyon
The NFA-PAC plans to conduct candidate forums and may choose to endorse candidates for regent. If you have questions you would like to ask at the forums or you have feedback on candidates for the NFA-PAC, please email Kent Ervin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
