Ross Miller is an attorney and politician. He is a member of the Democratic Party, the former secretary of state of Nevada, and 2012–2013 president of the National Association of Secretaries of State. Elected at the age of 30, he was the youngest secretary of state in the history of Nevada and the youngest secretary of state in the country at the time of his election. Miller declined to run for Governor of Nevada in 2014.
He is one of three children of former Nevada Governor Bob Miller and his wife, Sandy Miller, the former First Lady of Nevada.
Miller earned his undergraduate degree at Stanford University, during which time he worked as an intern for President Bill Clinton. He later received dual advanced degrees in Law and a master’s in business administration from Loyola Marymount University. Miller became a deputy district attorney in Clark County, Nevada. His record as a prosecutor led John Walsh to appear in a campaign ad for him during his race for secretary of state.
As secretary of state and Nevada’s chief election officer in 2008, Miller led a voter registration investigation into the prominent anti-poverty organization, Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now (ACORN). The investigation led to a search warrant being executed at ACORN’s Las Vegas headquarters and eventually led to the filing of 39 criminal counts against ACORN, its Las Vegas field director Christopher Edwards and its former deputy regional field director Amy Busefink. In August 2009, Christopher Edwards pleaded guilty to reduced charges and agreed to testify against ACORN and Busefink.
