PROBLEM: : In Nevada, the Secretary of State decided to send blank ballots to every registered voter in the state for the 2020 primary election, eliminating the application process

  • Together, the Priorities USA Democratic superPAC, the Democratic National Committee (DNC), and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) sued the state to mail ballots to “inactive voters” as well.

  • They dropped the lawsuit when Clark County, a Democratic stronghold and the county where Las Vegas is located, agreed to the changes.
     

  • The plaintiffs hinted that before the general election, they may sue again for legalizing ballot harvesting (i.e., third parties collecting and delivering completed ballots).

Duplicate Registrations

California’s ambitious effort to automate voter registration at Department of Motor Vehicle offices produced almost 84,000 duplicate records and more than twice that number with political party mistakes

Postal delays and mistakes have marred primary voting, and after years of budget cuts and plant closures, mail delivery has slowed so much that ballot deadlines in many states are no longer realistic.

The Tims were surprised, and a bit amused when they saw what Cody received in the mail. "We have a voter registration application for Cody Tims! How did this happen? It's not reality, he's a cat and he's been dead for a long time," said Carol Tims.

ballots tossed for a simple mistake

Slightly more than 23,000 ballots were thrown out, mostly because those voters or their witnesses missed at least one line on a form.
