As part of legislation enacted by the state's Democrats, the DMV automatically registers to vote every person who obtains a driver's license. In Nevada, both legal and illegal non-citizens can obtain driver's licenses and identification cards.
Jesse Kamzol, an expert engaged by the Republican Party as part of an election lawsuit, matched the 110,164 non-citizen records from the DMV, which were obtained through a subpoena by the state's Republican Party, against Nevada's voter file. He determined, with "high to mid-high confidence," that 6,260 non-citizens were registered to vote and 3,987 non-citizens had voted.
While he noted that the number may contain false positives due to limited information, Kamzol said the matches were nonetheless significant enough to merit further investigation.
"One of our most basic checks in the electoral process, that this sacred right is limited to those with the privilege and responsibilities of citizenship, was subverted by the DMV," the state's Republican Party said in a statement.
"And where are our law enforcement officers? We found this evidence without the help of our Top Cop in Nevada. Attorney General [Aaron] Ford: why are you not investigating voter fraud? You’ve made your position very public saying that you will investigate and prosecute voter fraud.
"Yet, we have blatant vote-buying, non-citizens receiving and casting ballots, deceased voters, people voting twice, etc., and you choose partisan politics to ignore the hundreds of pages of evidence while continuing the narrative that there was NO fraud."
The plaintiff in the lawsuit filed Kamzol's affidavit on Dec. 2 as part of a suit that has since been dismissed by the state's District and Supreme Courts. The plaintiffs are considering appealing the decision to the U.S. Supreme Court, but have not yet made a filing.
The lawsuit alleged that more than 60,000 people voted twice or were not Nevada residents.
During oral arguments, Jesse Binnall, the attorney for the plaintiffs, described a witness who alleged that the memory disks used to store vote totals from election machines during the early vote period had the tallies inexplicably changed overnight.
“What they would do is they would log these disks in and out. Good practice. And the disks had a serial number on them. And numerous times, that disk would be logged out with one vote total on it and logged back in the next morning during the early vote period with a different number on it. Sometimes more, sometimes less,” Binnall said.
