Case Study

The Nevada Secretary of State

The Nevada Secretary of State and KPS3 partnered together to launch a statewide campaign within a manner of weeks to raise awareness of Nevada’s first mail-in election. At the time, a lot was going on in the world, to say the least. With the pandemic causing many adjustments to daily life, it was important we delivered a campaign that connected to people in a light-hearted way that would break through the political noise. So, we asked Nevadans to “Mail It In” this year. And even though the polls were still open for early voting and on election day, 98% of all votes cast came via mail-in ballots, which led to one of the highest-participated primary votes in Nevada’s history.
