Trump Threatens Legal Action Over Nevada’s Decision To Send Mail-In Ballots To All Voters
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.
