Trump Sues Nevada Over Mail Ballot Deadline

The State of Nevada is being sued by the Republican National Committee (RNC) and former President Donald Trump over its policies surrounding mail-in election ballots.

Nevada accepts ballots up to four days after the election is over.

According to the lawsuit, “the result of Nevada’s violation of federal law is that timely, valid ballots are diluted by untimely, invalid ballots, which violates the rights of candidates, campaigns, and voters under federal law.”

RNC chairman Michael Whatley echoed this sentiment, saying that Nevada doing so “clearly violates federal law."

The Republican National Committee has said that the act of accepting any ballots in the mail that are received AFTER election day “undermines the integrity” of the United States election process.

Whatley released a recent statement on the matter.

“Nevada’s ballot receipt deadline clearly violates federal law and undermines election integrity in the state. Ballots received days after Election Day should not be counted — the RNC and our partners are suing to secure an honest election, support Nevada voters, and oppose unlawful schemes,” Whatley said.

As you would have guessed, the Nevada secretary of state, Francisco Aguilar, has pushed back against Whatley, the RNC, and Trump.

“Nevada runs some of the most secure, transparent, and accessible elections in the country. The key for that accessibility is allowing working Nevadans to vote using the method that works best for them, including voting by mail,” Aguilar claimed.

He did not stop there.

“Our office will not comment on ongoing litigation, but I hope the RNC is putting as much time and energy into educating voters on how to participate in elections as they put into suing the state of Nevada,” Aguilar continued.

Do you think Nevada should be held accountable for their mail-in ballot policy?
