CLARK COUNTY (KTNV) — Clark County Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria shared new vote count numbers, provided an update on provisional ballot reporting and addressed the Donald Trump campaign's lawsuit during a Thursday election update press conference.

"The first announcement that I need to make is that the posting that was placed on our website on election night and yesterday was incorrect," said Gloria of the county's provisional ballot reports.

"We determined that our tabulation software was incorrectly duplicating [the provisional ballot] records," he said, "and so the 120,000 that you may have seen on our website is an incorrect number. That has been corrected."

The correct provisional ballot number, he says, is a little over 60,000.

Gloria says the election department staff is counting around 50,000 ballots on Thursday for results to be released Friday morning before the 10 a.m. briefing.

When asked how many ballots were left to count he said he did not know.

"I can't predict to you what's going to come through the U.S. mail," he said.

Gloria has previously explained the department is statutorily required to receive ballots through Nov. 10 that are postmarked Nov. 3.

Gloria says he anticipates having the bulk of mail ballots into the system by Saturday or Sunday.

When asked about the Trump campaign's lawsuit alleging illegal votes were being counted, Gloria said he is not aware of any improper ballots being counted and that the campaign has provided no evidence of improper ballots.
