Nevada is among a few states that have not finished counting ballots and remain too close to call.
As of early Wednesday morning, Biden at 49.2 percent of the vote and incumbent Donald Trump had 48.6 percent.
There are also two races for the House that remain outstanding. Democrats Susie Lee in Congressional District 3 and Steven Horsford in Congressional District 4 have yet to know whether they’ll be going back to Washington D.C.
The Secretary of State told the Associated Press that a new batch of results wouldn’t be released until 9 a.m. Thursday.
Sondra Cosgrove is the president of the League of Women Voters in Nevada. She explained that votes made on a machine are easier to count but the mail-in ballots sent out due to the coronavirus pandemic are more time-consuming.
“Today, they’re going to have to be taking the mail-in ballots that were dropped off yesterday and they’re going to be looking at mail-in ballots that are coming in through the mail,” she said, “That process is time-consuming. They’re being very diligent. They’re matching signatures. They’re making sure the ballot is actually verified before it gets counted.”
Cosgrove believes it is a good thing that election officials are going to be focused on getting the votes verified and counted.
Support comes from
While Nevada is still too close to call, along with Pennsylvania, Michigan and Georgia, President Trump said during a speech late last night, “We will win this, and as far as I’m concerned, we already have won it,” and in a tweet falsely accused Democrats of trying to steal the election.
Cosgrove said it was “irresponsible” of the president to say that, noting that his campaign’s legal team sued – and won – to extend voting time in Clark County when polling sites were delayed
