GOP protests Nevada law to mail ballots to all active voters
LAS VEGAS — A few hundred people in Las Vegas chanted “open up the polls” and “Recall Sisolak” Tuesday as they held signs for President Donald Trump and protested a law signed this week by Gov. Steve Sisolak to mail ballots to all of the state’s active voters ahead of the November election.
The law has drawn criticism from Republicans, most prominently by President Donald Trump, whose reelection campaign filed a lawsuit Tuesday to try to block the law.
The Nevada Republican Party on Tuesday organized the protest outside a state government building in Las Vegas.
Nevada is now among eight states that plan to automatically send voters mail ballots this November amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump said at a Monday news conference at the White House that Nevada’s plan was “a disgrace.”
There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud through mail-in voting and election security experts say voter fraud is rare in all forms of balloting, including voting by mail.
