Sec. § 159.0594
Determination of whether proposed protected person lacks mental capacity to vote.


A protected person retains his or her right to vote unless the court specifically finds by clear and convincing evidence that the protected person lacks the mental capacity to vote because he or she cannot communicate, with or without accommodations, a specific desire to participate in the voting process.


If the court makes a finding pursuant to subsection 1, the court must include the finding in a court order and provide a certified copy of the order to the county clerk or the registrar of voters, as applicable, of the county in which the protected person resides and to the Office of the Secretary of State, in the manner set forth in NRS 293.542.
