As Secretary of State in Nevada, one of my responsibilities is to oversee elections, including maintaining the statewide voter registration database and conducting voter outreach programs.

That is why I’m grateful for the work of Third Act, and the tens of thousands of Third Actors who are rolling up their sleeves across the country.

Nevadans saw first-hand the power of Third Act in the last election—CNN highlighted your powerful work to knock on doors and rally voters to protect Sen. Cortez Masto’s Senate seat in northern Nevada. Third Actors were ambassadors at over 800 schools in the U.S. to set up voter registration drives for high school seniors, which reached 100,000+ new voters. You’ve sent over 46,000 postcards to voters to help raise turnout. This commitment to free and fair elections is crucial, and it’s inspiring. 

If you haven’t already done so, I hope you will donate to support Third Act’s No Time to Waste Campaign to build an even stronger movement going into 2024. To build communities and a society that we can believe in, it will require everyone’s participation. We’re counting on you!

This election week, and each week between now and November 2024, we need to defend every eligible American’s right to vote, remove barriers to voter participation, and make our elections as transparent as possible to maintain the public trust. Third Act can be an invaluable help. I’m glad to be on side with you all in the fight to protect our precious democracy.

Yours in service,
Cisco Aguilar
