A whistleblower has alleged in an affidavit that election officials in Clark County, Nevada, counted mail-in ballots despite concerns about the validity of signatures.
The individual had been working as a counting board member in the county since October.
“I personally witnessed disregard of signature verification as well as other irregularities,” the whistleblower said in the affidavit that has been sent to the Department of Justice, the Examiner reported.
The Nevada whistleblower said that he or she observed “a significant number of signatures on mail-in ballots I believe did not match the name and should have been reviewed,” while working in the elections office.
“When I asked the supervisors, [redacted] and others, about it, instead of taking the ballots to verify the signature in the electronic database, the supervisor told me to push the envelope through without verification.”
The Department of Justice and Clark County did not immediately respond to requests for comment by The Epoch Times.
In August, state lawmakers amended the law to ensure every registered Nevada voter received a mail-in ballot.
Trump campaign Nevada chairman Adam Laxalt at a press conference Thursday that 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. He added there were “dead voters that have been counted.”
Meanwhile, he claimed, “thousands of people who have been counted … have moved out of Clark County during the pandemic.” Clark County includes Las Vegas, the state’s largest city.
The Nevada GOP said that it expects that number to “grow substantially.”
“Thousands of individuals have been identified who appear to have violated the law by casting ballots after they moved from NV,” the party wrote.
