The dramatic rise in non-major party voters will affect Nevada elections starting this cycle, and the party that figures out how to talk to and mobilize them will have a significant advantage.

That was the consensus of a panel that gathered at the Silver Legacy in Reno on Tuesday evening at an event sponsored by The Nevada Independent. The panel was: Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve, a longtime nonpartisan; Don Carlson, a retired professor/pollster; Cecia Alvarado, Nevada state director of Mi Familia Vota; and Yindra Dixon of Blackbox Consulting Group.
