Most recently, a judge in Nevada on Friday night denied an effort to toss out signature-verification machines in Clark County, home to Democrat-stronghold Las Vegas, based on what the campaign said was “lax procedures for authenticating mail ballots.” U.S. District Judge Andrew Gordon said he didn’t think the Republican Party arrived in court with “sufficient evidence” to support its claims.
As part of the lawsuit, the Nevada GOP also attempted to get closer-up access for observers — similar to demands in Pennsylvania and Michigan. The party’s lawyer argued that observers should be close enough to hear everything poll workers were saying. The judge pushed back, asking what they would do if someone was soft-spoken.
“At what point does this get ridiculous?” the judge asked.
