Hand vote count stops, but Nevada county vows to try again


Associated Press

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A rural Nevada county awash with voting machine conspiracy theories has stopped its unprecedented effort to hand count ballots cast in advance of Election Day. The move on Friday followed a state Supreme Court order late Thursday and a directive by the state’s top election official. Nye County officials also vowed to try again to gain approval from the court and Republican Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske to resume the count as early as next week. The ACLU of Nevada says it doesn’t believe there’s any hand-counting scenario that will pass legal muster. The organization says it will fight any attempt to restart the hand tallies.
