Many have heard me joke that I am single-issue voter when it comes to elections: I support UNLV Boyd grads. The recent election shows the increasing impact the law school has on Nevada as more and more of our alums are elected to serve in the judiciary or legislature. I would like to extend my congratulations and thanks to these Boyd alums who were elected or reelected to serve Nevada. Please note, the list below does not include several other legislators, judges and Boyd alums in the executive branch. This list is only alums who were on the ballot in 2020.
