Nevada election officials on Wednesday said they won’t announce additional voting results until Thursday morning — with the fate of the battleground state’s six electoral college votes remaining at stake.
The Secretary of State’s Elections Division announced that as of early Wednesday, the state had counted all the votes cast in person before and on Election Day, and all mail-in ballots received until Tuesday, CBS News reported.
“That’s it for election results updates until 9:00 am on Nov. 5. Here’s what has been counted so far: –All in-person early votes –All in-person Election Day votes –All mail ballots through Nov. 2,” it said in a tweet.
Republicans and President Trump’s campaign were rebuked by state’s Supreme Court on an appeal aimed at stopping the count of mail-in ballots in the Las Vegas area.
The court did not stop election night counting, calling instead for written filings to be completed Monday in a case that could affect the vote tally in Clark County, a Democratic stronghold in an otherwise red GOP state.
Democrat Hillary Clinton won the state in 2016.
