8:00 P.M. UPDATE: Hundreds of people showed up to a "Stop the Steal" protest at the Lloyd D. George federal courthouse in downtown Las Vegas to vent their frustration over the election outcome.

People who attended held signs and waved flags while chanting "stop the steal" and "Trump 2020," among other slogans.

The group was also joined by passing vehicles that honked their horns and also waved Trump-related items.

"There was a lot of chanting, 'Trump 2020,' 'no vaccines,' a lot of chanting, a lot of chanting up and down [Las Vegas] Boulevard, I was driving it, I've been out here on the sidewalk," said Kim Costca, a Donald Trump Supporter.

"We're here today to represent the truth, we're here to represent," said Erin Bolger, a participant in the protest.

"The media has not been telling us what is true, this is what's true, that there are people who want to believe and who believe what is right and want to see the political process correctly run," added Bolger.

Election officials and federal authorities have said there is no proof of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

1 P.M. UPDATE: A couple of hundred people are now gathered near the federal courthouse in downtown Las Vegas. At this time, the protest is peaceful. Las Vegas police are on the scene.
