  • AGO 99-37 (1999) In addition to provisions of law related to the circulation of an initiative or referendum petition (see NRS Art. 19, § 3 and NRS 295.055), Buckley v. American Constitutional Law Found., Inc., 119 S.Ct. 636 (1999), makes invalid—with respect to any ballot access petition—a requirement that the circulator of the petition be a registered voter (see NRS 293.128 and 295.150).
