LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Trump campaign and Nevada Republicans want a state judge to stop the counting of Las Vegas-area mail-in ballots, alleging that "meaningful observation" of signature-checking is impossible in the state's biggest and most Democratic-leaning county.
The lawsuit filed 10 days before the Nov. 3 election alleges the local elections chief failed to get proper approval in April from the Secretary of State for the vote plan.
A judge in Carson City declined to issue an immediate stop, but set a hearing next Wednesday.
It also complains that a GOP offer to install video monitoring equipment at the Clark County election headquarters was rejected.
State Democrats called the lawsuit a plain-and-simple effort to suppress votes in the state's most diverse county.
