The Nevada legislature passed a bill Sunday allowing every voter to receive a mail-in ballot — a measure critics say increases chances of ballot harvesting and which President Trump said ensures Republicans could never win the state again and that the elected officials are “using Covid to steal the state.”
He followed by saying “See you in court!”
Despite pushback from Republican Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske, the bill was passed and gives Governor Steve Sisolak the power to order Cegavske to alter the election process during a state of emergency.
Additionally, the bill expands who can turn in ballots — potentially opening the door for ballot harvesting, according to Fox News.
Governor Sisolak is expected to sign the bill into law in the coming days. President Trump accused him of trying to “steal the state.”
The defense of the bill appears to be citing the June primary where a limited number of polling places were open due to the pandemic and the lines were long — up to several hours, according to USA Today.
As the state is still in the pandemic and state of emergency, the Governor says this measure will ensure voters can have their ballot and not have to wait in long lines.
The Sara Carter Show podcast, however, recently explored mail-in ballots and the risk they pose to voters and the election as a whole.

Oklahoma passes bill banning majority of abortions from ‘moment of fertilization’
Oklahoma’s Republican Governor Kevin Stitt signed a bill into law on Wednesday which bans virtually all abortions “from the moment of fertilization.”
“I promised Oklahomans that as governor I would sign every piece of pro-life legislation that came across my desk and I am proud to keep that promise today. From the moment life begins at conception is when we have a responsibility as human beings to do everything we can to protect that baby’s life and the life of the mother,” Stitt said in a statement. “That is what I believe and that is what the majority of Oklahomans believe.”
The state legislature first approved the bill, which goes into effect immediately, last week. It bans abortions from the moment of fertilization, except for in cases where rape or incest occurred, or where the mother’s life is in danger.
The law also allows for private citizens to sue doctors or those who participate in “producing an abortion for up to $10,000, mimicking the enforcement mechanism in Texas’s fetal heartbeat law” reports National Review.
Under the new law it is a felony offense to perform an abortion, “which will take effect in August unless a court challenge blocks it.”
