Most 2020 Nevada election integrity cases resolved without finding of fraud; recent Republican document drop under review

A log obtained by The Nevada Independent through a public records request shows there were 298 election integrity case files submitted to the secretary of state’s office from the beginning of September through Tuesday. It does not characterize the complexity of any individual case — such as whether a complainant suggested a single improper vote or submitted a spreadsheet alleging thousands of suspicious votes — or offer names of complainants or the accused.

In an election-themed “Facts vs. Myths” document updated on Tuesday, the secretary of state’s office pushed back on claims from the Texas-based organization True the Vote that the office had responded to a request for the state’s publicly available voter list in an email that carbon copied the CEO of a Pakistani-owned intelligence company. True the Vote is a conservative nonprofit group focused on identifying voter fraud.

Secretary of State: No evidence of 'wide-spread fraud' in Nevada’s 2020 election

In a “Facts vs. Myths” document posted to the secretary of state’s website late Friday, Cegavske’s office wrote that it is pursuing several “isolated” cases of voter fraud, but has not seen evidence of any large-scale fraud that would meaningfully affect Trump’s 33,596-vote loss in the state.

The appeal notice was filed Monday afternoon before the state’s highest court and marks the likely last chance for the president’s campaign to challenge election results in Nevada, as Tuesday marks a federal “safe harbor” election deadline where states must certify election results or resolve litigation before members of the Electoral College meet to cast their votes for president by Dec. 14.

Judge rejects Trump campaign lawsuit seeking to block state’s presidential election results, says no evidence election was affected by fraud

Judge James Russell ruled Friday against the Trump campaign’s unprecedented request to either block certification of the state’s presidential election results or award the state’s electoral votes to Trump, saying in a written order that the campaign’s claims of voter fraud to the level needed to bring the state’s presidential results into question fell far short of the evidentiary standard needed to contest the results of the presidential election.

Judge to rule Friday on Trump campaign lawsuit seeking to overturn state’s presidential results

Judge James Russell asked attorneys for the Trump campaign and defendants (the electors appointed by the state Democratic Party to cast the state’s six electoral votes) to prepare a proposed order by 10 a.m. on Friday — saying he wanted more time to review claims made during the Thursday afternoon hearing but with enough time for parties to potentially appeal to the state’s Supreme Court.
