Crucial Undecided State Stuns by Declaring No New Election Results Until Thursday


Election officials in Nevada have controversially announced they will not report any additional election results Wednesday, despite the closeness of the race.

Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden currently leads President Donald Trump in the state by a margin of fewer than 8,000 votes with 86 percent of the vote reported, according to The New York Times.

Six electoral votes hang in the balance in a hotly contested presidential race.

Do you think Democrats are attempting to steal a win from President Trump?

Despite the tight race and the broader picture, the Nevada Secretary of States’ Elections Division announced on Twitter early Wednesday morning it would not release any more information until Thursday.

“That’s it for election results updates until 9:00 am on Nov. 5. Here’s what has been counted so far: All in person early votes … All in person Election Day votes … All mail ballots through Nov. 2”

The Elections Division, also noted mail-in ballots that were received on Election Day had not been counted, nor had provisional ballots or mail-in ballots expected to be received “over the next week.”

“Ballots outstanding is difficult to estimate in Nevada because every voter was sent a mail ballot. Obviously, not all will vote,” the Twitter page noted.

The Twitter announcement stirred both curiosity and anger:
