Nevada Seems to be Playing Games With Ballot Count Reveal, As If We Needed Any More Drama

So just exactly what is going on with some of the still outstanding states delaying reporting on the final counts?

North Carolina, a state in which President Donald Trump is leading and will likely win, does not yet have final numbers. As my colleague Sister Toldjah reported, Trump has over 76,000 votes up on Joe Biden there. So what’s the hold-up there? There are 117,000 absentee ballots outstanding and the time for reception of those ballots was extended to 9 days after the election because of Democratic legal maneuvers. So now they literally know how many ballots they would need to have to make up the difference in the state. Theoretically, it has to be postmarked by Nov. 3, however. There are also provisional ballots that need to be assessed. So they’re simply hanging up the process, although it wouldn’t seem like the outstanding ballots could overcome the difference.

As Sister Toldjah reported, some of the 117,000 might included people who decided not to use the absentee and who decided to vote in person on Election Day.

But North Carolina is refusing to put out any more numbers until November 12. That’s sheer lunacy with all that’s hanging in the balance to wait that long.

Meanwhile Nevada is playing games and we don’t even get an explanation for what’s going on there. They didn’t have final numbers last night.

Then said they would post more information today because of “high interest.”

From KLAS:

Although Nevada officials said early Wednesday that no new election results would be released until 9 a.m. on Nov. 5, the Secretary of State’s office is now saying more results will be released Wednesday afternoon.

“Obviously, there’s a lot of interest in how the vote is going in Nevada and we recognize that,” Deputy Secretary of State for Elections, Wayne Thorley, told 8 News Now. “We will have a fairly large update hopefully later today which again get us even closer to final unofficial election results.”

Then after saying that, they pulled back and said they wouldn’t be saying anything until tomorrow morning again. What the heck?

If the election wasn’t already jacking us around our, they do stuff like this?

A MAGA account made the following observation that it was after the count moved toward Trump and was pretty much almost to a tie with only about eight thousand separating the two that the voting notices seemed to stop in Nevada.

Coincidence? Perhaps. I guess we’ll find out in the morning.

But why do some states have their act together and others are just perennially out to lunch? Maybe some could learn from Florida which apparently cured their issues and figured out how to get their act together on counting.
