Trump campaign suing Nevada county over early voting
The Trump campaign claims Clark County kept the polls open too long to accommodate early voters. But polling places have an obligation to make sure anyone on line at closing time gets to vote.
The Trump campaign is suing Joe P. Gloria, the Clark County registrar of voters, claiming that he kept polling locations open for “two hours beyond the designated closing time,” according to CNN.
Early voting surged in the Las Vegas, particularly in locations in Latino communities, like a Hispanic grocery store where voters waited in lines for hours, according to reports.
Nevada elections officials deny the Trump campaign’s claims. A Clark County spokesman told CNN that officials only allowed those who arrived at the polling place by the official closing time to vote. He denied that the closing times were extended.
Nevada law says that polling places should be remained open for voters waiting in line by the official closing time.
