LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Democratic vice presidential candidate Sen. Kamala Harris was in Las Vegas Friday, Oct. 2. Senator Harris participated in a voter mobilization drive-in event, where she campaigned and urge Nevadans to make a plan to vote early.
She spoke in a parking lot at UNLV.
As Sen. Harris addressed the crowd, supporters mostly stayed in their vehicles, so that they could be socially distanced from each other. Horns honking replaced the more traditional applause.
Harris spoke about the importance of voting in this year’s general election, saying there is a lot at stake.
She echoed what former Vice President Joe Biden, has been saying throughout the course of this campaign – “we are in the battle for the soul of our country.”
Harris said she and Biden also have a plan to tackle the coronavirus and build back America’s struggling economy, which has really impacted Nevadans.
Sen. Harris says she wants everyone to vote.
“They know when we vote, things change,” Harris said. “They know when we vote, things get better, so, Nevada, never let anybody take your power. We know what is at stake.”
In Clark County, the official mail-in ballot will start to be sent out on Oct. 7. Early voting, either in person or by ballot drop off is Oct. 17-30.
