On Tuesday, with hours to go before voting concludes, Forbes reported that President Donald Trump's campaign is suing to demand the Nevada Supreme Court stop the counting of certain mail-in ballots.


"The Trump campaign and Nevada Republican Party asked the Nevada Supreme Court on Tuesday to stop the counting of some mail-in ballots in Clark County, where Las Vegas is located, until their concerns over how closely its election observers can watch the Democratic stronghold’s vote-counting process can be resolved," reported Alison Durkee.

"The GOP plaintiffs are asking for “the ability to meaningfully observe the processing of mail ballots,” and take issue with current vote-counting measures like a program used to automatically check for signature mismatches," said the report. "The plaintiffs also take issue with a process in which any ballots with deficiencies that prevent them from being read by the tabulation machine are duplicated onto a blank ballot by an election worker in a private room."

Republicans have fought expansions of mail-in voting in Nevada for months. In August, they sued to try to block a new law that automatically sent mail-in ballots to registered voters. That suit was dismissed in September.
