Serious security gaps in Nevada’s election system uncovered this week put the credibility of the entire system and November 2016 election in doubt.
Did President Trump win Nevada after all?
Did Question 1 really pass? There is now a serious crisis of confidence in the election system in Nevada that must be addressed now. On October 25, 2017, 360Daily.net served the Clark County Elections Department with the attached Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA).
360daily.net requested on October 25, 2017, the following information from the Clark County Elections Division:
Under the Nevada Open Records Act (NRS.239), we are requesting
- A month by month break down of the total number of voter registration forms of legal and illegal aliens submitted to your office from the DMV over the last 24 months.
- A month by month break down of the total number of voter registration forms of legal and illegal aliens submitted to your office but not accepted from all sources over the last 24 months.
- The total number of registration forms reject by your office for over the last 24 months broken down month by month.
- The number of legal and illegal aliens purged from the voter rolls over the last 24 months broken down by month by month.
360Daily.net received the attached letter below from the Clark County Elections Department in response this week. Note the paragraph in which they say “We do not have access to any database which can identify legal and illegal aliens in our voter registration system. Therefore, we do not have the ability to provide the records listed in your public information request.”
The Clark County Elections Department admits in their response that they are not checking the citizenship status of any voter registration forms submitted to their office from the DMV and or any other sources.
They go on in their response letter to say they operate on an honor system. “It is the voter’s responsibility to verify that they are eligible to vote.”
However, DMV information officials have told 360Daily.net that they put an asterisk next to the names of the people they suspect are not citizens when they “transmit voter registration forms to the Clark County Elections Department.”
In addition, the DMV computer system does not have any way of distinguishing who is and is not a citizen according to the DMV spokesperson. So DMV clerks who accept the paper voter registration forms are putting the asterisk next to the names of people they know are not citizens.
But under a settlement earlier this year with the ACLU, the Nevada Secretary of State and the DMV, the DMV must submit those registration forms to the Clark County Elections Department even when they know the person is NOT a U.S. citizen.
The 2013 Senate Bill 303 allowed illegal aliens living in Nevada to obtain driver authorization cards and became law on January 2, 2014. At the time the bill passed, it was estimated that there were some 100,000 illegal aliens living in Nevada, and an estimated 60,000 would be eligible to obtain drivers’ authorization cards.
It is this system that has opened the floodgates to illegal aliens registering to vote at the DMV here in Nevada. Last month 360Daily.net reported that, according to FBI sources, some 55,000 illegal aliens are currently registered to vote in Nevada.
