The Nevada Republican Party on Nov. 5 announced that its lawyers have sent Attorney General William Barr a criminal referral alleging at least 3,062 cases of voter fraud in the state.
“We write to bring to your attention criminal voter fraud in the State of Nevada in the 2020 general election. Specifically, we have initially identified 3,062 individuals who appear to have improperly cast mail ballots in the election,” the lawyers wrote, noting that they anticipate the final list of fraudulent ballots “will grow substantially.”
The letter also states that a separate note outlining the findings was sent to Joseph Gloria, the Clark County registrar.
"Voter fraud is a serious federal felony, one that cuts to the heart of representative democracy,” they added. "We understand that these are serious allegations and we do not make them lightly."
The Department of Justice and Clark County did not immediately respond to requests for comment from The Epoch Times.
The Nevada Republican Party shared an image in a separate tweet claiming that four mail-in ballots were cast in Washoe County by people under the age of 18—three registered with no party affiliation and one registered as a Democrat.
“NV ballots for kids? 4 MAIL votes cast in Washoe Co by people UNDER-18! 1 Dem & 3 NP,” the Nevada GOP wrote. “Father of a 17 yo who registered & received ballot thankfully contacted county re: his ineligibility…The Radical Left dreams to lower voting age but... they can’t legally vote!”
The Epoch Times has reached to a spokesperson for Washoe County for comment.
Earlier in the day, Trump campaign Nevada chairman Adam Laxalt said there were “examples of ballots mailed across this valley … in trash cans… people getting as many as 18 ballots” in the mail, saying that it is evidence of voter irregularity.
“We still have not been able to observe these signatures or meaningfully examine mail-in ballots out of hundreds of thousands of ballots cast,” Laxalt, the former Nevada attorney general, said in the news conference.
Richard Grenell, Trump’s former acting director of national intelligence, told the conference: “If you haven’t been in the state for 30 days it is illegal to vote … we are filing this lawsuit to protect legal voters.”
As of early Friday morning, Trump was behind former vice president Joe Biden in Nevada by around 11,400 votes with 84 percent of the vote counted.
