Trump Campaign, RNC File Lawsuit Against Nevada Over Expanded Mail-In Voting Bill

President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign and the Republican National Committee (RNC) are suing the state of Nevada over a recently passed bill that would automatically send ballots to registered voters.

On Tuesday night, the Trump campaign and RNC filed a lawsuit against Nevada’s Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske (R) that argued a bill the state’s legislature passed on Sunday is unconstitutional. The bill was signed by Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak (D) on August 3.

In a press release announcing the lawsuit, Trump campaign senior adviser Jenna Ellis said, “Democrats know President Trump is gaining ground in Nevada, so they fully and fundamentally overhauled Nevada’s election laws in a rushed 72-hour attempt to rig the election.”

“This unconstitutional legislation implements the exact universal vote-by-mail system President Trump has been warning against for months, making it nearly impossible for every Nevada voter’s ballot to count,” she added.

RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel alleged, “Democrats changed the rules of the game at the last minute to try and rig this election.”

“They overturned a bipartisan ballot harvesting ban to allow strangers to pick up a ballot for anyone, including the most vulnerable to COVID-19, and have thrown out many important safeguards,” she added.

The release said the RNC and Trump campaign hope to invalidate the bill, AB4, and prevent state officials from enforcing it.

On Sunday, the state legislature passed AB4 on a party-line vote. The bill would automatically send mail-in ballots to active voters in the state to help ensure residents can cast their vote without going to a polling station and risking exposure to COVID-19.

It also would require counties to open more polling locations for election day. 

On Monday, Trump took to Twitter to blast the passage of the bill, as IJR reported.

“In an illegal late night coup, Nevada’s clubhouse Governor made it impossible for Republicans to win the state. Post Office could never handle the Traffic of Mail-In Votes without preparation,” he said in a tweet.

He added, “Using Covid to steal the state. See you in Court!”

  1. Delbert-for once I have to act like a Democrat and can’t hold back from calling you an idiot!! Beside all the BS this country has gone through is because of Hillary and the Dem’s not accepting losing. They were confident that they rigged the last last election enough that they couldn’t loose! And that’s why they don’t accept the results!! And I’d bet my paycheck if you get your ass beat again this year you will claim it was stolen or taken unfair, or unjustly! I have seen personally a person living in an apartment who received his mailed ballot………he also received in the same mail box, mailed ballets for the previous 3 people who lived at that same address before him. You think that this only happened once in the millions of mailed ballets? Sure it did?! I also have seen a video wherein someone received a Ballet for his cat…….so how the hell does that happen? Go ahead an believe what you want DUMBERT. Let me say in conclusion that the same holds true for you….don’t complain should the mail in ballets aren’t in your favor.

  2. If what they say about there being two ballots sent in each envelope and no signature required it sounds ripe for fraud. I have mailed in my early vote for years in AZ. It’s important who counts the votes.

  3. Notice how all the democrats who are complicit in the Covid-coup are bending over backwards for mail-in cheating? No agenda there…

  4. Voting anywhere invites voter fraud. If no fraudsters exploit the invitation, there’s no fraud to worry about. What’s going on is, Trump is trying to raise as much doubt as possible over the election so that he can file lawsuits to let him stay in office without winning an election.

  5. Terri doesn’t realize that we have been using mail-in voting since 1864. If it was a problem, we would have heard about it by now.

  6. Sorry TERRI but you just lost the common sense lottery. It’s just not true. Analysis of mail-in ballots rate of possible voter fraud is 0.0025% rate of possible voter fraud. But thanks for playing TERRI….what’s his consolation prize there Fred?? lol

  7. Mail in voting is working well in the 17 states that allow it. Republicans know that the more people vote, the less their chances of winning anything!

  8. It’s rather obvious to anyone with a hint of common sense that mail-in voting would invite voter fraud – which is rather ironic in light of the contrived ‘Russian interference’ investigation they created with the 2016 election.
