Trump’s campaign held a Sunday afternoon press conference outside the Clark County Elections Department in Las Vegas to denounce alleged anomalies in last week’s election.
Among its speakers were former Attorney General Adam Laxalt and U.S. Conservative Union President Matt Schlapp.
Laxalt attacked the state’s signature verification process as inadequate to protect against alleged fraud, pointing out that Trump’s campaign could not observe the veracity of the approximately 600,000 votes that were counted. in Nevada through a mailing system.
“This campaign did not observe, keep an eye on… the signature on the envelope, and the signature on the electoral roll, on only one of those 600,000 voters,” Laxalt said before the boos of audience.
Laxalt also criticized the Clark County Registry’s use of a signature verification machine called the “Agilis system”.

“At least 200,000 voters were counted through the process of verifying the signature of this machine,” Laxalt said. “I will repeat to the media: No human being looks at those signed matches to confirm that they are really matches.
Schlapp claims that there have been instances of underage voters who were dead and at least 9,000 non-Nevadans voted in Tuesday’s election.
“We know that underage voters voted in this most recent election. How difficult would it be to clarify that no one can send a vote if they have a date of birth after a certain year? Schalpp asked.
He said more than 100,000 people left amid the economic downturn, “but through our due diligence we can see that at least 9,000 of them voted in this election. . Non-Nevadans voted in Nevada. ”

Both Laxalt and Schlapp stopped calling for specific legal action, but said they would continue to review their options and present all evidence of misconduct they find.
Fox News contacted the Clark County Elections Office with a request to comment on the Laxalt and Schlapp allegations but received no response.
The arrival of Laxalt and Schlapp came after a US federal court judge on Friday rejected an urgent request from Nevada Republicans seeking to change the signature verification process used in state.
US District Court Judge Andrew Gordon said the relief the two Republican candidates sought in Clark County would delay the vote count.
“I don’t see that the plaintiffs have proven the possibility of success based on the plaintiff’s requests,” said Gordon. “The public interest does not disrupt the vote count.”
