Nevadans For Secure Elections (NFSE) was a ballot measure committee formed by left-of-center operatives to promote and pass the successful Nevada Question 5, which authorizes registration of voters by Nevada’s Department of Motor Vehicles. The proposition was put onto the ballot after a similar measure was vetoed by then-Governor Brian Sandoval (R-NV) in 2017. 
Its leadership and funders are well established Democratic Party insiders and major fundraisers for Democratic candidates and issues. Rebecca Lambe, a longtime aide and operative for former Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), and Ellen Kurtz of iVote led the campaign with spending targeted by Matt Griffin, a lobbyist and public affairs specialist.
Nevadans For Secure Elections was formed to promote Nevada Question 5, authorizing automatic voter registration at Nevada’s Department of Motor Vehicles, in the 2018 election.
Matt Griffin formed and was the registered agent of NFSE after the proposition qualified for the November 2018 ballot. 
Backed by left-of-center organizations including Sixteen Thirty Fund, Tom Steyer’s NextGen Climate Action, iVote and the ACLU, Nevadans For Secure Elections promoted proposition 5 and secured its passage. 
The ACLU contributed $1.15 million to NFSE as well as funding canvassers to knock on doors as part of a $10 million budget in support of left-progressive voting measures in multiple states. 
Ellen Kurtz was president of Nevadans for Secure Elections and is president of iVote, a left-of-center PAC focused on enacting automatic voter registration broadly with short-term activity in states with Republican Secretaries of State. 
Rebecca Lambe, the committee treasurer, was campaign manager for then-U.S. Sen. Harry Reid’s 2010 successful re-election to the U.S. Senate from Nevada. Previously she had served as executive director of the Democratic Party of Nevada. She founded Senate Majority PAC and worked to protect the Democratic majority in the Senate in 2012. Senate Majority PAC spent $165.6 million in the 2018 election cycle with $20.0 million coming from Democratic presidential primary candidate Michael Bloomberg.   
Matt Griffin is a partner at the Griffin Company, a public affairs consulting and law firm, and at Bullpen, a political consulting firm that advocates with political influencers. He was the registered agent of Nevadans for Secure Elections and has spoken broadly on the committee’s behalf. Currently he is engaged by Everytown for Gun Safety, a prominent gun control organization.
