Judge dismisses Trump campaign challenge to Nevada mail-in voting law

In a significant setback for the Trump campaign in the battleground state of Nevada, a federal judge has ha respinto una causa brought by the campaign over the state’s new mail-in voting law.

Under the recently passed law all active voters receive a mail-in ballot, whether they ask for one or not. The bill, AB-4, was passed in a special session and requires all active voters to receive a mail in ballot during the state of emergency caused by la pandemia di Covid-19.
The Trump campaign has 30 days to appeal. CNN has reached out to the campaigns for comment.
The Nevada case has been one that the President has closely watched and hoped to win, according to his tweetsand it’s one of the few absentee ballot challenges initiated by the Trump campaign and Republican Party this election.
    While Trump has been successful in a few of those claims in other states, the ruling against him in Nevada follows a series of losses where courts refused to cut back mail-in voting and buy the campaign’s warnings of the potential for widespread voter fraud.
    The state argued that the campaign had no standing to bring the lawsuit, and District Court Judge James C. Mahan agreed.
    In his order, granted on September 18 and made public Monday, Mahan said called the campaign’s argumentstoo speculativeand did not show there was asubstantial riskof putting the election in jeopardy. Trump has repeatedly promoted the false claim that universal mail-in voting systems like the one Nevada adopted lead to widespread fraud.
      Nevada Democratic Party Chairman William McCurdy, in una dichiarazione, called the dismissala win for democracy. Donald Trump and Republicans have been hell bent on limiting voting options for one clear reason: Republicans will lose if more Nevadans vote in this election.
      In un tweet, Democratic Gov. Steve Sisolak said he was pleased with the ruling and said it wouldexpand options for Nevadans and provide for safe, fair & accessible elections during the pandemic.
