CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed legislation Monday to mail all of the state's active voters ballots ahead of the November election, a move being criticized by President Donald Trump, who promised a lawsuit to block the action
This bill will enable election officials to continue to support the safest, most accessible election possible under these unprecedented circumstances, Sisolak, a Democrat, said in a statement.

The sooner they file the suits the sooner they’ll get dismissed.
Ha! All they really have to do is print their own ballots. How are they going to match thr ballots to people who can legitimately vote. Answer: they won’t.
Exactly, get ready for lawsuits beginning the day after the Presidential election and they will go on for years. The question is, if we do not have a outcome, does Trump remain in office until thee is one?
2. Since we already have some counties that are all mail in voting, that makes it hard to fight this in court.
Seems our only recourse is to do what they're doing. Get out there and start collecting ballots, just like the Dems. I really, really want Sisolak out but seems Vegas thinks he's doing a terrific job!
Sisolak has kept open the polling places. We still will have the option of voting in person. The problem is the ballot harvesting on the part of the Dems.
My question was asked in a general sense.
Do I have the right to have my single vote counted in a responsible manner without dilution?
The location (state) is irrelevant.
I think most maintain some in-person polling places but many are mostly mail. AZ for instance is around 80% main-in and it works very well.
The well managed mail systems are safe and efficient but the problem will be in states trying to implement them in a rush.
At least do an E.O. requiring the signatures for ballots in federal elections be notarized. Back door to some voter ID.
The question is, what’s to come as we get closer to the election and as the America/American-hating Democrat/Left Party becomes increasingly desperate?
It’s the unlimited ballot harvesting that I hope gets shot down. During the primary, ballots were seen in the trash and piled in doorways of apartment buildings. Those ballots can now be picked up, filled out, signed and turned in by anyone.
That’s the problem with just sending out ballots willy nilly rather than having registered voters request them.
If this isn’t stopped, any state with a strong majority dem legislature can do the same thing ending free and fair elections forever.
That’s not hyperbole, it’s reality.
Let the cheating start. The dims are going to try everything and I mean E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G to cheat, steal, lie, threaten, sell, give away, EVERYTHING to steal this election. Then after Trump smashes Deadhead Joe, let the riots, looting, stealing, begin. Heard Andrew Wilkow on SerisSatRadio today and he was talking about they actually believe and tell these thieves and thugs it is their right to collect now from the rich folks! A form of slave reparations! Free stuff for all never been a slave in their lives bunch.
I can’t remember where I heard it. I’m pretty sure it was on Rush Limbaugh. Ballots have an embedded code that identifies the printer.
Republicans need to have poll workers who watch every ballot as it is verified and counted.

The USPS is part of the executive branch. I wonder if trump could simply instruct the USPS not to deliver ballots via EO.
I don’t know what other states do, but when I got my ballot at my voter registration address, there were 2 envelopes inside the mailed envelop. The larger envelope also had my correct registration address and a place to put my signature and the date. The smaller envelope had nothing that identified me, and I was to put my filled out ballot into this and seal it, put it into the signed envelope which did not need me to apply a stamp, and then mail it before the deadline date.
Thus, the key to fair counting was for poll watchers from both parties observe the outer envelopes being opened and the blank envelopes removed and all put together. Then watch all the blank envelopes be opened and the ballots inside be sorted and counted. So the key is the final opening and counting process. Each party has to do a good job of having the right people there at the end. One mailed ballot complaint I heard was that when the outer envelope was opened the plain white envelope had already been sealed so they could not vote by mail. Perhaps instructions should be included saying that if the plain envelope cannot be used, one should substitute some other plain envelope to contain the ballot for submission.
I live in NV and for our mail in, June primary, the outside envelope had my party affiliation printed for all to see. All they have to do is throw it away. No one would be the wiser.
Hopefully that could be changed by law. I don’t remember seeing anything like that on my mail back envelope. However good observers for the final opening and counting should prevent the envelopes from being discarded.
