LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A new tweet Thursday morning by President Donald Trump on election fraud has prompted a reply by Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak.
Trump has tweeted several times about his opposition to mail-in ballots, and the potential for fraud. In today’s message, he distinguishes between his opposition to an all-mail election and absentee voting, but he continues to spread fear about fraud.
Fact-checking efforts since the 2020 primary election have shown that fraud was extremely rare.
State and local authorities around the country have spoken against the president’s suggestions that fraud will compromise election results.
Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske has said the state will return to a traditional election in November, with polling sites open throughout the state. Limited in-person voting caused long lines and delayed election results in the primary.
