Barber: Get ready to vote (commentary)

Date:

Primary election voting starts this week for four Reno City Council seats.

By Alicia Barber, PhD

Who is running for Reno City Council in 2024?

  • Reno City Council races are NONPARTISAN. That means you can vote for anyone who is running to represent your ward, regardless of your registered party affiliation or theirs.
  • The Washoe County Registrar of Voters has info on candidates for Reno City Council races (and all other primary races). Visit the Washoe County Registrar of Voters 2024 Election Page (you have to scroll down a bit to see the Reno City Council wards). The County also provides a platform for candidates to provide statements, if desired, on the Candidate Profiles webpage.
  • Information on candidates can also be found on the Ballotpedia website, where some have completed a survey about themselves, their values, and positions. You can view the Reno City Council section here.
  • All Reno City Council candidates’ Declaration Forms (their filing documents) can be found on the City’s 2024 Election page here.
  • You can find all the candidates’ submitted financial informationincluding Contributions & Expenses (C&E) and Financial Disclosure Statements (FDS) on the Secretary of State website here.

Let’s move on to information about the candidates for each ward. For our purposes here, I’m citing media platforms that have invited all of the candidates to answer questions or to sit for interviews and I’m also providing links to candidate websites, when available. If you know of a candidate website I have not included here, please let me know and I’ll add it to their name. [Note: The candidate website URLs will not be active links in the emailed version of the Brief, but will be hyperlinked on the web version.]

Some candidates also have written and more will write their own opinion pieces for various media platforms in the weeks to come. I recommend following the outlets included in my Citizen Guide (and others) to view these as they become available.
