LAS VEGAS (AP) – Attorneys for President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign and representatives of the six Nevada Electoral College delegates for President-elect Joe Biden inspected election papers at the Clark County’s main electoral office in suburban Las Vegas on Tuesday.
The North Las Vegas polling center visit preceded a hearing that was due to be held in Carson City on Thursday in front of Judge James Russell in a campaign procedure filed by the Trump campaign.
Jesse Binnall, an attorney who leads the Trump election challenge in Nevada, has said he wants to prove that fraudulent votes were cast and that Trump won the state, not Biden. Binnall did not immediately respond to news of the polling station inspection on Tuesday.
The Nevada Supreme Court has confirmed the election results as official, including Biden’s nationwide victory over Trump with 33,596 votes in a coronavirus-inspired postal ballot push to avoid crowds at polling stations.
Lawyers representing voters’ chancellor Joe Gloria and the state and national democratic parties did not refuse the on-site visit.
Russell found in a court order on Monday that state law allows inspection reports and materials “relating to the equipment and programs used in the elections” to be viewed.
States have a deadline to settle electoral disputes before the president’s electoral college votes on December 14th.
