Nevada Legislators, 1861-Current
Search our database of legislators.
Any combination of fields will work - use as many or as few as you need. The symbols & / ! represent Boolean AND, OR, NOT and may be used between words or phrases. Include a space before and after the symbol. For example, you could search for Washoe / Elko in the County field and you would get results that had one or the other county assigned to it. If you search for Washoe & Elko in the same field, you will get results that have both of those counties. Likewise, if you search for Washoe ! Elko in the same field, you will get results that have the Washoe county, but not Elko.
Use an asterisk (*) at the end of a word to search for all possible word endings. For example, you could search for legislat* and you would get results containing all words beginning with legislat (legislature, legislative, legislator, etc.).
