Trump Sues Clark County Election Official for Letting People Vote

Donald Trump

Donald Trump’s campaign is suing Joe P. Gloria, the Clark County registrar of voters, over a decision team Trump alleges he made to keep polling locations open “two hours beyond the designated closing time.”

As we reported Sunday, no early voting stations extended their closing times. They did, however, process voters who were in line at closing time. That’s a common practice at polling locations around the country.

Dan Kulin, a spokesperson for the county, told CNN that no early voting stations extended their closing times. They did process voters who were in line at closing time.

According to CNN, Trump’s lawsuit is a sign that his legal team is aggressively laying the groundwork for potential legal challenges — big and small.

In legal papers filed Monday night, Trump lawyers are asking for an order to have the pertinent early vote ballots not to be “co-mingled or interspersed” with other ballots.

CNN Reports that Nevada is such a close contest that the Trump campaign thinks it’s worth challenging any violation in voting protocol. The numbers of votes being challenged by Trumps legal action could represent several thousand people across the four Clark County precincts

Robert Lang of the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He said the Trump campaign is “smart to put a marker down for a future challenge, considering what happened in 2000 in Florida.”
