“Any pandemic voting plan should do two things: it should make it easy to vote, and hard to cheat. Nevada’s new plan doesn’t do that; in fact, it senselessly invites fraud, chaos, and voter disenfranchisement by stripping away basic voting safeguards. It even opens the door to the unsettling prospect of counting ballots cast after Election Day. Worse still, if this new lawsuit is any indication, it runs afoul of voters’ Constitutional rights as well. Nevadans already made national headlines when undeliverable ballots were left to litter sidewalks after it rushed into a vote-by-mail primary election. The state should learn from that mistake, not repeat it.”
