Lack of Media and Voter Integrity Go Hand-in-Hand in Nevada

With Nevada one of eight states, plus the District of Columbia, that conducted its election via a universal absentee ballot system, meaning that every registered voter was sent a ballot whether or not it was requested, the Republicans claim the state received eight-and-a-half times the number of votes as it did in the 2016 election, while Clark County received 10 times more ballots.

But why? Here’s what the media isn’t telling anyone…

Clark relies on a ballot sorting system with an inadequate signature verification process that failed 89% of the time and was discovered to be the top reason mail-in ballots were rejected in 2016. That ballot sorting machine is called Agilis.

According to their own website: “The Agilis provides election officials the ability to sort their own mail ballot packets and verify voter signatures with complete accuracy and a full audit trail inside their own secure facility. The Agilis eliminates the movement of ballots around an office so all nontabulated ballots remain in a secure location during sorting and signature verification.

Earlier this year, Clark County officials announced that they would need to lower the recommended factory tolerance settings on the Agilis machine in order to capture the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles’ signature used to verify mail-in ballots. To match a ballot signature, the Agilis machine requires a clear signature on file with election officials scanned at a minimum resolution of 200 dots per inch.

However, the bulk of Clark County’s signature files come from the Nevada Department of Motor Vehicles which doesn’t even have the capability of scanning signatures at that resolution. Knowing this, Clark County election officials still went ahead and lowered the signature match threshold, rendering the system nearly useless.

Amid this, Clark County also saw a huge spike in ‘problem’ voter registrations during the 2020 Presidential election cycle.

Analysis of voting records show that during the 2016 Presidential election, there were only 68 voter registrations missing critical data. That number jump to 13,372 this year, with 74 percent of the errors occurring between July and September.

Finally, there were more than 13 thousand voters whose registration information contained no sex or date of birth, or who had listed their residence or mailing address as a temporary RV park or a casino. This mean that there is no way to track these people or to know if any of these voters were of legal age to cast a ballot or even if they were legal residents of Nevada.
