The number of mail-in ballots returned as “undeliverable” in the Las Vegas area was nearly three times the margin of victory that President Joe Biden allegedly won the state of Nevada by, according to an election-integrity watchdog.
In a newly released research brief, the Public Interest Legal Foundation revealed that in Clark County, 92,367 ballots were returned of the 1,277,897 that were mailed.
Biden won the entire state by 33,596 votes, PILF said.
“Mass-mail balloting is a step backward for American elections,” said Christian Adams, PILF president and general counsel. “There are millions of voter registration records with unreliable ‘active’ address information that will ultimately send ballots to the wrong place in a mail election.”
PILF noted that the issues came as little surprise since a similar scenario occurred during the state’s primary elections earlier in the year.
Nevada was one of several states that became the focus of vote-fraud allegations and scrutiny following the Nov. 3 election.
Eyewitnesses reported seeing Biden campaign buses parked just outside the precinct that appeared to be giving away free campaign memorabilia and helping would-be voters to fill out their mail-in ballots before collecting them and delivering them en masse.
Like several other contested states, Nevada’s legislature imposed controversial last-minute rules changes for the election, ostensibly in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
That included mailing ballots to all the registered voters on its state rolls—a decision that the Trump campaign challenged unsuccessfully in court on the basis of the potential for rampant fraud.
Unlike some of the other disputed states, though, the fraud centered around Sin City has a well-documented history, including Trump having narrowly lost to Hillary Clinton in 2016 under similar circumstances, by a margin of just over 27,000 votes.
But PILF noted that over the four prior election cycles—from 2012 to 2018—only 5,863 mail-in ballots had been returned as “undeliverable,” raising questions as to what Trump’s actual margin of support may have been without the corrupt rules changes.
Only two counties in the state actually backed Clinton and Biden: Clark, which encompasses Las Vegas and the surrounding area; and Washoe County, which includes Reno and Lake Tahoe—a popular escape for Silicon Valley oligarchs.
Adams warned that the disturbing irregularities noted in Las Vegas could become the nationwide norm if Democrats have their way.
Last week, the Nancy Pelosi-led House passed a party-line vote in support of H.R. 1, an alarming overhaul of election rules that would shift control from the states to Congress itself, likely ensuring permanent Democrat majorities.
“H.R. 1 does more harm than good for the American people and will leave them at a constant disadvantage to correct election system errors which ultimately impact their abilities to vote in a timely manner,” Adams warned.
