Elections Office: No Voter Fraud Reports in Nev.

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS (AP) -- Officials with Secretary of State Ross Miller's office say there was nothing close to voter fraud reported at Nevada polls.

Miller's office pointed to long lines as the reason why some polls hadn't officially closed nearly 90 minutes after the 7 p.m. deadline.

The elections office didn't release results until all counties reported polls were shut.

Miller spokeswoman Catherine Lu says no voter fraud has been found, but there were some snags on election day.

Problems that were reported included three voter machine malfunctions. Lu says the issues were resolved in each case.

Other issues include a campaign sign that was allegedly too close to a polling place entrance, and an Elko voter who was upset that his registration was canceled. The elections office determined the cancellation was valid.
