CARSON CITY — Secretary of State Ross Miller’s Elections Division has notified two Nevada candidates who filed for public office in the 2012 elections that their nicknames were removed from the secretary of state’s website because they indicate a political or social view or affiliation in violation of Nevada law.

Nancy “Occupy” Price and Eddie “WarNoMo” Hamilton were also notified that the nicknames will not appear on the election ballot. According to NRS 293.2565, “A nickname must not indicate any political, economic, social or religious view or affiliation.”

Both candidates were informed by telephone message. Hamilton has since acknowledged the action, and Price has yet to respond.

The updated webpage can be found in the “Elections Center” of the secretary of state’s website, www.nvsos.gov.
