Nevada election results: State pauses vote counting until Thursday

All mail ballots and provisional ballots still left to count

Nevada has temporarily suspended vote counting in the 2020 election, and will not resume until Thursday morning at 9am PT, which is 5pm in the UK.

The state still has all mail ballots received from Election Day onwards to count, as well as provisional ballots.

Around 70 per cent of the votes have been counted in Nevada so far with Joe Biden leading Donald Trump 49.2 per cent to 48.6 per cent, according to data from the Associated Press.

4. Reports are the workers are exhausted after working unexpectedly all night long.

It's frustrating but the votes WILL be counted. They are all from Blue areas so should break for Biden.

Patience Grasshoppers.

13. Reportedly they counted all the votes already.

Nevada sent out ballots to every registered voter. They’re going to keep counting them as they come back in (they’re accepted through the 10th as long as postmarked yesterday or earlier).

3. So, is this the normal way they do it in Nevada?

Otherwise, what is their reasoning?

And, doesn’t it mean it gives plenty of time for some ballots to be ‘disappeared’ from Biden friendly areas.

Darn.

We need voting reforms. There needs to be a much more standardized method for all states for Federal elections (President, Senate, House)

Crazy

15. Question not answered by the article, perhaps answered with a quick web search:

Is this pause legal in NV?

Statutes & Regulations - https://www.nvsos.gov/sos/elections/election-resources/statutes-regulations
TITLE 24 - ELECTIONS - https://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-293.html

https://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-293.html#NRS293Sec363
NRS 293.363  Preparation by counting board to count paper ballots.  When the polls are closed, the counting board shall prepare to count the ballots voted. The counting procedure must be public and continue without adjournment until completed.


https://www.leg.state.nv.us/NRS/NRS-293.html#NRS293Sec333
NRS 293.333  Procedure for depositing absent ballots in ballot box; period for counting of absent ballots. [Effective January 1, 2020.] [snip]

2.  Counting of absent ballots must continue through the seventh day following the election.


Hmm.
