Democrats were rallying all over the valley on Thursday to urge Republican lawmakers to help select a new Supreme Court Justice.
The highly political issue has reached a fever pitch since Antonin Scalia died last month.
Progress that's been made on filling his seat has been little to none.
The Republican-controlled Senate wants to put off the confirmation process until after November's election.
Democrats are urging the people in power to do their jobs and make the court whole again.
"The cases that they decide really do determine so many aspects of our lives and we want to make sure that they're able to decide that with a full bench," said Samantha Fredrickson with Nevada Advocates for Planned Parenthood.
Nevada's GOP didn't immediately return our messages for comment.
