Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Trump campaign files lawsuit requesting Nevada court to block election officials from counting early votes”. Below is an excerpt from the article.
The Trump campaign and Nevada Republicans filed a lawsuit on Friday requesting the state court to block the counting of early voting ballots "until the proper procedures are in place."
According to the lawsuit reported by CBS News, the Trump campaign, the Nevada Republican Party, and a registered voter asked the state's Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, a Republican, and a Clark County, Nevada voting official to temporarily block the counting of ballots to "protect the integrity of the 2020 election."
The lawsuit claims the Clark County registrar did not have a "written plan" for how the public could observe the processing of ballots at polling locations and that the county "intentionally lowered the tolerance number" of a sorting matching that matches signatures for mail-in-ballots with those on file so that it would decrease the number rejected.
Carson City Judge James Wilson denied the request for a temporary restraining order to stop ballot counting, but scheduled an evidentiary hearing for Wednesday, according to The Nevada Independent.
"Transparency is paramount to ensure Nevadans the right to a free and fair election," Nevada Republican Party Chairman Michael J. McDonald said in a statement on the suit."Clark County's refusal to allow people to observe the handling of ballots and their low standards for matching signatures should disturb all voters."
