6.  Nevada: Dead people voting; rise in voter registrations listing invalid birthdates and unknown sex; voters bribed with gift cards and gas cards

In Nevada, which has six electoral votes, current vote totals show Biden leading Trump by a margin of less than 34,000 votes, equivalent to 2.39% of the vote.

As is the case in other swing states, the voter fraud allegations center around the state’s core metropolitan area. In this case, the focus is on Clark County, home to Las Vegas and an overwhelming majority of the state’s population.

In a sworn affidavit, data scientist Dorothy Morgan detailed a noticeable spike in the number of Nevada voter registrations that listed invalid birthdates and unknown sex. 2020 saw 13,372 such registrations, compared to just 68 in 2016.

“I have also identified dozens of voters who listed as their home or a mailing address a temporary RV park and casino,” she wrote. “Based on the results I have found in the limited time I have had to analyze this dataset, I expect to find additional oddities in the election data as I conduct further analysis.”

A lawsuit filed by the Trump campaign described a voting drive campaign conducted by the Nevada Native Vote Project in an effort to increase voter turnout in the Native American community:

“To incentivize voters within the Native American community, the NNVP offered gift cards, gas cards, raffle entries, and T-shirts in exchange for voters coming to the polling place and casting their votes.”

The NNVP’s campaign was widely publicized on social media and the Trump campaign maintains that “offering something of value to a voter in exchange for his/her vote is a violation of federal and Nevada law. All such votes cast in exchange for the above described incentives are, therefore, illegal and improper votes. The evidence will show that there were no less than 500 of these illegal and improper votes.”

“The fact that the voting drives were officially promoted by NNVP organizing personnel displaying ‘Biden-Harris’ promotional material and logos reflects that value was being offered to voters under these circumstances in an effort to manipulate or alter the outcome of the Election,” the lawsuit asserts.

In addition to expressing concern about the actions by the Nevada Native Vote Project, the lawsuit cites evidence that “there were significant numbers of votes cast by voters who did not meet the residency requirement to vote in Nevada,” including “mail-in ballots received from dead persons,” ballots completed and submitted by non-voters, and mail-in ballots submitted after the deadlines were processed.

“In violation of Nevada law, the County Registrars failed and refused to grant meaningful observation opportunities to the general public with respect to the mail-in ballots,” the lawsuit declares. “Clark County’s observation procedures failed to ensure transparency and integrity as it did not allow the public to see election officials during key points of mail ballot processing.”  

On Tuesday, the Nevada Supreme Court rejected President Trump’s appeal to overturn the state’s election results.

It comes a week after a district court in Nevada ruled that the Trump campaign has not proven allegations there were errors in voting machines or that the election results were manipulated.
