President Trump’s campaign already filed a lawsuit in Nevada, alleging that there were ineligible votes that were cast in the area of Las Vegas. 

As of Thursday night, Biden is already leading in Nevada with over 11,000 votes. However, there are still 50,000 votes that are left to be counted in the upcoming days. These votes can still be accepted according to Nevada’s state law as long as they were postmarked by November 3. 

Nevada had been delayed in providing its election results, stating that they still need time until tomorrow to count the outstanding votes. Meanwhile, the country is waiting in agony to find out who will be the next president. 

President Trump was also narrowly lost in Nevada’s 2016 election as the state had been trending towards Democrats in the past decade. The last Republican candidate to win the state was George W. Bush last 2004.

On the other hand, the Trump campaign filed a court order in the US District Court to stop the Clark County Registrar of Voters from using an optical scanning machine to read ballots and verify voters.

This happened after a woman gave her accounts on Thursday, saying that she was turned away from casting her votes in person because a mailed-in ballot had been cast that has her signature on it. In addition to this, a political strategist commentator stated that he was denied the opportunity to watch ballot-counting late on election night.

According to Trump’s campaign co-chairman in Nevada, Adam Laxalt, this occasion “highlights ongoing voter fraud and voter disenfranchisement in Clark County.”

On the other hand, Nevada Democrats are accusing Republicans and Trump campaigns of disturbing and suppressing voting in the most populous and diverse area of the state. 

If Joe Biden wins Nevada, he will gain another 6 electoral college points, and this will give him 270 if you factor in the 11 electoral college points that come from Arizona in case he wins. If he loses Arizona, he will be left with 259 electoral college votes. Then he will need another 11 votes to win. This can come from either Georgia, with 16 electoral college votes, North Carolina with 15, or Pennsylvania with 20 electoral college votes. 

North Carolina is expected to go to Trump as to how it did in the past 2016 election. However, it is still unclear when the state will announce the winner. 

Trump Campaign cries fraud.

Trump campaign continues to cry fraud as they claim that they have evidence to support tens of thousands of votes cast there fraudulently. 

On Thursday morning, Ric Grenell, former Director of National Intelligence, told Fox News, “We are confident that when all legal votes are tallied — and only legal votes are tallied — President Trump will win the state of Nevada. The reality is transparency is not political. Ballots are not automatically legal votes until they’re checked. We are not able to check.”

Grenell further stated that there is a 30-day residency requirement for you to be able to vote in the state of Nevada. If you haven’t been a resident of the state of Nevada for at least 30 days before the election, it will then be illegal for you to vote.

He also said that Trump’s campaign is filing the federal lawsuit to protect legal votes saying, “It is unacceptable in this country to have illegal votes counted. That is what’s happening in the state of Nevada,” 

Many votes came from people who were deceased or no longer live there.

In addition to this, the Trump campaign is also claiming that multiple numbers of votes cast in Nevada came from people who are no longer living in the state or were cast by names of people who are already deceased.

On the other hand, in Pennsylvania, the counting of votes in Pittsburg and Philadelphia was temporarily stopped last Thursday because of the ongoing court disputes. In Georgia, 60,000 votes remain uncounted, and in Michigan and Wisconsin, it was called for Biden on Wednesday. 

President Trump took it on Twitter last Thursday morning, tweeting, “Stop the count!” he further stated that no ballots cast “after election day” should be counted. This statement was made in reference to the number of mail-in ballots that will be permitted to be counted until Friday, specifically in the state of Pennsylvania, as long as the ballots were mailed in on the election day, November 3.
