The results from Nevada were originally expected late Tuesday. But suddenly officials stopped reporting the results and then announced that they would start counting the remaining ballots again on Wednesday and no more announcements would be made until Thursday, Nov. 5. The news was given by the state government itself via Twitter and no further explanation was given.

Nevada officials originally expected to release the results on Tuesday night, but will instead delay them until at least 9 a.m. on Thursday, when they are expected to make the next announcement.

No official reasons were given for the delay, only that without notice election officials stopped counting the ballots on Election Day and planned to return to them on Wednesday.

In an official Twitter statement, the Nevada State Division of Elections announced that the next update would be reported at 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov., 5 and that so far, all early ballots have been counted; all in-person votes, all in-person votes on Election Day, and all mailed ballots up to November 2. 

In another statement, it was reported that there is still time to count; mail-in ballots received on Election Day and mail-in ballots to be received during the rest of the week and through Tuesday of the next week.

The Nevada State Legislature changed the state’s election laws in August so that absentee ballots can be automatically sent to all registered voters. Subsequently, President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Nevada Republican Party filed a lawsuit to challenge the election law changes, which was denied by Judge James Wilson.

President Trump, on his Twitter account, denounced this situation in August, warning that there was an illegal coup fomented by the Democratic governor of Nevada and warned that the post office would never be able to handle the traffic of votes sent by mail. That is indeed what is happening today and what is causing the delay.

According to Breitbart’s report, the latest update states that Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has a lead of just 7,500 votes over President Donald Trump, out of a total of nearly 1.2 million votes counted for both candidates. Biden received 588,252 votes to Trump’s 580,605 votes.

It is not known how many ballots remain to be counted, but whatever the number, the difference between the two candidates is so small that the situation could quickly be reversed.
