Trump electoral college candidates in Nevada are contesting the state’s presidential election results—alleging fraud and irregularities. They’re seeking to get Trump declared the winner in Nevada.

A Trump campaign official, Adam Laxalt, said over 15,000 people who voted in Nevada also voted in another state. One thousand voters allegedly didn’t meet the residency requirements. And 500 ballots were allegedly cast for dead people.

He also took issue with the system in Nevada’s largest county—Clark County. He said they won’t investigate a contested vote unless someone issues a complaint.

He said, “If a person has died, and that ballot was mailed to someone’s home, and someone voted that ballot, who is going to complain about that vote cast? No one, quite clearly. So the system isn’t investigating these things.”

The lawsuit also raised issues with the county’s signature scanning machine. It says the images used to compare signatures were of lower quality than what was suggested by the manufacturer. It also says election workers lowered the machine settings below the manufacturer’s recommendation—making it unreliable.

It alleges that 70 percent of the signatures were rejected after the setting was changed.

Plaintiffs also allege that some vote-buying occurred through some Native American outreach programs.
