    None of the recount efforts has changed the presidential election – despite the price tag – and that’s also true now in Nevada, which just concluded a partial recount. According to a press release from the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office on the evening of December 8, the Nevada recount found these changes: Hillary Clinton lost 9 votes. Donald Trump lost 6 votes. There were no other changes found in the state that Clinton won. The state will not conduct a statewide recount because so few errors were found.

    The Washington Times ^ | December 8, 2016 | Stephen Dinan
    Sen. Harry Reid warned his colleagues not to abuse the filibuster, asked for a return to pork-barrel spending and begged them to find a way to limit the power of interest groups to spend money in elections, saying Thursday that the fate of American democracy depends on it. The Nevada Democrat who led his party to political heights of a 60-vote majority, then watched as it slipped away over the last six years, delivered a pair of swan song speeches, regretting nothing from his hard-nosed approach to politics, while doling out advice to all who would listen. He is retiring...

    Do Illegal Votes Decide Elections? There’s no way to know. But the evidence suggests that significant numbers of noncitizens cast ballots. By Hans von Spakovsky and John Fund Donald Trump’s claim that illegal voting may have cost him a popular-vote majority has touched off outrage. Widespread voter fraud, the media consensus suggests, isn’t possible. But there is a real chance that significant numbers of noncitizens and others are indeed voting illegally, perhaps enough to make up the margin in some elections. There’s no way of knowing for sure. The voter-registration process in almost all states runs on the honor system....

    Las Vegas gun shops are looking for guidance after Nevada voters approved a ballot question extending firearm background check requirements. Question 1 passed on Election Day by a narrow margin — much more narrow than polls predicted — cementing background check requirements for private-party sales and transfers into state law. The new background checks law takes effect Jan. 1, but some gun store owners said they aren’t sure what to do then. Bob Irwin, owner of the Gun Store on East Tropicana Avenue, was under the impression that the law still had to go through the Legislature before it would...

Though both states tilt in the same direction as their 2012 results, the leaders' margins are tighter than their predecessors' final leads were in each state.
