A whistleblower has provided more evidence to bolster suspicions that the election results in Nevada may not be trustworthy, the Washington Examiner.
Although the name of the whistleblower has not been revealed, the individual is known to be a ballot counter in Clark County, which has the majority of Nevada voters.
This information comes by way of an affidavit that the whistleblower submitted to the Department of Justice, which was then obtained by the Washington Examiner, with some redactions.
Behind the scenes
The whistleblower worked on the Clark County ballot counting board until Nov. 6 when he or she quit “due to concerns about how the votes were being counted,” Breitbart reported.
In the affidavit, the whistleblower describes some of the “irregularities” he or she saw, which included pushing flawed ballots through.
“I personally witnessed [the] disregard of signature verification as well as other irregularities,” the whistleblower said, according to the Washington Examiner. “While working, I observed a significant number of signatures on mail-in ballots I believe did not match the name and should have been reviewed.”
When the whistleblower questioned the supervisors about this, “instead of taking the ballots to verify the signature in the electronic database, the supervisor told me to push the envelope through without verification,” they recalled.
One irregularity the whistleblower saw was a returned mail-in ballot with a message on the envelope which said that the individual no longer resided at the address on the ballot. “This ballot should have been listed as a rejected ballot, but the supervisor instructed me to push the ballot through,” the whistleblower said, according to the Examiner.
Clark County registrar of voters Joe Gloria responded to the allegations by saying his office has “an explanation for anything that he may have seen,” according to the Examiner. Gloria said:
The people on the counting board don’t have access to the signature map. So that’s work that takes place here in this building before it ever gets to the county. So I think that explains. I’m not completely familiar with what exactly the individuals was talking about in specific instances, but we have an explanation for anything that he may have seen.
In Nevada, mail-in ballots were sent to every registered voter, regardless of whether or not a ballot was requested.
Only time will tell just how many incidents like the ones described by the whistleblower actually took place in Nevada — and whether or not they’re significant enough to change the outcome of the race.
