What is taking so long to count ballots in Nevada?

NEVADA (KTNV) – The wait continues to see who will bring the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidential election. Ballots are still being counted in important battlegrounds, including Nevada.

Nevada’s six electoral college votes may be the deciding factor in this election.


So what is the delay in counting ballots?

Nevada Attorney General Aaron Ford reported, “This year it’s taking a little longer than usual because every active voter has received a mail-in ballot this year.”

“Mail takes time because election officials must ensure that no one has more than one vote,” he said.

“And counting ballots has also taken time because we have many security measures in place to prevent fraud,” Ford said, “such as signature verification, unique bar codes and other devices.”

Ford says officials knew the counting process would take some time this year and our counting process is overseen by a bi-partisan board in each county.
