Trump Campaign Asking a Federal Judge to Stop Nevada’s Mail-In Election

Just weeks before the Nov. 3 elections, President Trump’s campaign is asking a federal judge in Las Vegas to prevent mail-in ballots from going to all active Nevada voters amid the coronavirus pandemic, and block a state law that allows this. Documents filed in U.S. District Court say Republicans might be confused and discouraged from voting, and confidence in the election could be undermined. Nevada has asked the court to throw out the suit. The state argues that vote-by-mail can be done safely and the virus could make voting in person dangerous for some people. The Trump campaign also argues that the new law, forces republicans to divert resources to educating Nevada voters to the changes and encourage them to still vote.
