consensusamong experts is that all forms of voter fraud are rare.At a Monday press conference, Trump said that he planned to file a lawsuit against Nevada as early as Tuesday. He called universal mail ballots a disgrace and said they would be a great embarrassment to the United States.

He took aim at a provision that expands who can collect and return ballots, which he said enabled individuals to “take thousands of ballots, put them together and just dump them down on somebody’s desk after a certain period of time.”He also targeted the provision that allows ballots postmarked by Election Day to be counted up to a week later could create a circumstance where the race couldn’t be called in a timely manner.

“You’ll never know who won that state,” he said.Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid applauded the lawmakers’ decision and called Trump’s opposition desperate.“He’s lying about our state leaders and threatening a bogus lawsuit simply because Democrats made it easier for people to vote,” Reid said in a statement.

Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske told lawmakers Friday that she wasn’t aware of any fraud in the June primary, when the stateall active voters absentee ballots and only opened a limited number of polling places to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

Limited polling places in Reno and Las Vegasresultedin lines of up to eight hours.In the June primary, all counties had one polling place except for Clark County, which had three in the Las Vegas area. The bill requires at least 140 polling places throughout the state in November, including 100 in Clark County, which had 179 in the November 2018 election.

Christine Saunders of the Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada said the long waits in the June primary demonstrated why the state needs both mail and in-person voting opportunities.“No one should have to choose between their health and voting,” she said.

In states such as Colorado and Oregon, which have mailed all voters ballots for years, the procedure ischeaperthan holding an in-person election, officials said.But Cegavske said the equipment, education, printing and postage would cost the state an additional $3 million, not including costs to counties, which distribute and tabulate ballots.

Nevada spent more than $4 million in federal relief money in the June primary, most of it funneled to counties. More than $1 million went toward leasing counting and sorting machines to accommodate a greater number of absentee ballots.Cegavske, the state’s top election official and only Republican to hold statewide office, opposed the revised procedures. She blasted the Democratic-controlled Legislature for excluding her from discussions and said she saw a draft of the bill only a day before the vote in the state Assembly.

“We were not involved in this bill’s writing at all,” she said Friday.The bill gives the governor the power to command the secretary of state to adjust election procedures during a declared state of emergency. It passed on a party-line vote through both the state Senate and Assembly, with Democrats in favor and Republicans opposed.

Republicans were particularly distressed with provisions that expand who is allowed to collect and hand in ballots. They and Trump say it enables a practice detractors call “ballot harvesting,” in which volunteers working for political groups collect and turn in large quantities of ballots to tip the scales in elections.

Democrats argued allowing people other than family members to return ballots would help groups like members of Nevada’s 32 Native American tribes, who have historically faceddifficultyvoting and live far form polling places, and seniors who may need assistance with voting and fear venturing to the polls.

Although it is not in his power, congress does need to take Trump's concerns into consideration. there is NO room for error in this election. whatever party you side with, you all should want a fair election! 28 million mail-in ballots went missing in the last four elections.

Governor Sisolak is corrupt. He does not follow the will of the people. We in Nv want him gone. Now everyone needs to demand that the USPS removes the current 45 appointed head and put someone in who will ignore 45, get everything running again and fully funded.

Trump and the Republican Party are so Damn Slow. I don't know why they think they can lead a Country

Well, I guess if they screw up and can't get the votes counted during the appropriate time frame, they lose their votes They should not take on a task they are totally unprepared for.
