LAS VEGAS (AP) — Voters in Nevada are having their say Tuesday on ballot questions aimed at tightening background checks for gun buyers and legalizing marijuana for recreational users.
Those two measures have drawn the most money and attention in the run-up to Election Day.
But voters also face proposals to break up power producer NV Energy’s exclusive statewide monopoly, and to exempt medical devices like oxygen tanks, feeding pumps, and hospital beds from being taxed. Each of those votes is a first in a two-step process. If approved, the measures would have to pass again in 2018 to amend the state constitution.
