Heavy wind deters some Nevadans in early voting

At the Las Vegas headquarters of Culinary Union Local 226, hundreds of people gathered Saturday morning at a rally for Democratic candidates before heading out to canvass voters. Union leaders, Sisolak, Cortez Masto and U.S. Rep. Dina Titus fired up the crowd and highlighted the importance of voting in the election.

The crowd roared to life when the elected officials entered the hall. Sisolak led the crowd in a chant of “Si, se puede!”

“We have made so much progress in the last four years on worker rights. We’re going to do more on rent stabilization and protecting people’s job. But all the progress that we’ve made is on the line right now,” Sisolak said, stressing the importance of Democratic candidates winning their races. “Rest assured that (if they win) Catherine’s opponent, Dina’s opponent, my opponent, they’re going to unwind all of the good stuff that we did. They’re going to take your rights away from you.”

Aaron Rodriguez , who said affordable housing is an important issue for him, was one of the approximately 400 people from the Culinary Union who went out to knock on doors later Saturday.

“You’re expressing yourself and when you put that vote in there, that’s you speaking for yourself,” Rodriguez said. “You want government to do something; do something too.”
