"When Mr Plier comes in, we'll find out he supposedly was going to speak. During prime time tonight, Other outlets reporting at 7 P.m., but I don't know that that was officially nailed down. I wouldn't be surprised if it's a little later because he's waiting for East West Coast prime time as well. We have no idea what Joe Biden is going to say when he takes the stage over the last few days when he's spoken. It's mostly been saying Votes need to be counted. Let's be patient. Let's be calm. He could say that tonight he could talk about the pandemic and say, Hey, let's where Mass. Let's be safe with social distance because the numbers have been going through the roof. He could try to claim victory, which would be premature because votes are still being counted. You can't be the candidate who says, Count every vote and then suddenly say, OK, I have got enough votes now it's over. Hey, certainly could say that We need to keep counting. But I am planning as if and talk about what he's doing to prepare, etcetera, etcetera. It'll be interesting to see what he does when he takes the stage tonight. We have heard reports. Kamala Harris will be by his side. I don't know if she will speak a cz. Well, I don't know if this will be short. Last time we spoke, I think was about 2.5 minutes. This is his little outdoor car park. That he does The drive in movie theater life shows that which is is fun and interesting. Quite honestly, Most of the outlets are have the electoral map it to 53 to 13, AP and Fox News both called Arizona For Joe Biden. The story's air going around that President Trump was really unhappy with Fox News for doing that, And I'm so surprised that Fox News did do that. Not only because you would think that they're going to air on the side of caution with the president, because you know, Fox news eyes definitely. And I would say, a proponent for the most part of President Trump. But also because it was just early to call. But a P also called it. Maybe they were going by that pretty much nobody else did. And most people show it. From what I've seen Flipping the channels at 2 53 2 to 13. The map. I'm going by my own map. Map. Football. Electoral College man has President Biden is President Trump at 2 31 and Vice President Biden at 2 53 So 2 53 22 31. So when we talk about trying to figure out the challenges that airhead because these are very small margins in very small amounts of oats. In Georgia. Joe Biden is up by 4039, Pennsylvania, 19,000, and we get up to bigger and bigger numbers, but still numbers within just percentage points as of earlier today, when I was looking at the numbers Joe Biden was up by 1.3%. Arizona. 1.6% Nevada 0.1% in Georgia. I think that has changed to 0.2%. 0.2% in Pennsylvania. 0.6. So we look at those four that everybody's still talking about Arizona, Nevada, Georgia, Pennsylvania. For President Trump to turn this election around and get to 270 electoral votes he would need to flip three of those states. Just Pennsylvania alone wouldn't do it. Just Pennsylvania and Georgia even wouldn't do it if Joe Biden just got Arizona and Nevada, the two smallest remaining He would still get 2 to 70 and get exactly 2 to 70. So President Trump really needs to turn around three state so we could look a little deeper at the two other ones that he was. He's expressed a lot of angst over how the count was done. So Wisconsin and Michigan Wisconsin has Biden up by 0.6% still insanely close. Michigan has buying up by 3%. So that's that's a wide margin. Considering where we're at with everything else. So I started looking up today. Where? How could these things happen in and where could the president say I'm very unhappy things because he has talked a lot about Democrat controlled States. Democrat controlled cities talked a lot about Philadelphia. I'm certainly glad Chicago wasn't in play. He would have really had a field day with being upset with Chicago. We know that for sure. Arizona has a Republican governor. But it has a Democrat secretary of state, the Arizona governor, Doug Ducey, former CEO Stone Cold Cream Marie. I wonder if him and Jim over eyes have a little you know, if do she's like, Well, I want you keep trying, but I'm in office there, buddy Boy Stone cold and then hangs up the phone stone cold slime to phone down. Oh, Bryce. And then he has one of those like those little straws. They put the milk shake the what are those things called a little You know, chocolate wrapped cookies that are so delicious. Their secretary of state Katie Hobbs is a Democrat. So Arizona, you kind of gotta split thing. They're Nevada has a Democrat governor. But a Republican secretary of state their secretary of state, Barbara Saganowski, has been secretary of state since 2014 so she's been around. It's not new to the job. Georgia has a Republican governor. And a Republican secretary of state. And the Republican governor took over the governorship last year in 2019. He was the secretary of state for the eight years before that, so they've had Republican control over these things for a while, so that makes it a little tougher. I think for President Trump with some of the arguments he's like to make about Democrats get in there and and mucking things up or, you know, fraud and things like that. Pennsylvania We have a democratic governor, Um The secretary of state. This is interesting. The secretary of State is not an elected position. In Pennsylvania. It's an appointed position, so it's sort of like a Cabinet position has to be approved by the state Legislature. But it's an appointed position. So ah, Cathy back book Far, I think, also a Democrat, but she's appointed But Joe Biden only his 0.2% Lee, they're huge. Turn around in the vote there. Remember, President Trump was up, I think like 600,000 that whittled away. It became a leave for Biden. So probably the biggest place for him to make a case that you know, and he has made a strong He has accused strongly Pennsylvania of having a fraudulent vote s O. That's a place where President trump. I think we'll try to make some hay. But the problem comes inform that even if you get things turned around in Pennsylvania somehow, and that vote is increasing. You know, largely, it's like upto almost 20,000. The difference now, so getting votes tossed out a recount just gets him to recount everything. Make sure they did it right. But getting those tossed out is much more of a challenge in getting that large of a number of votes tossed out is going to be very difficult. So if you look over, by the way, the whole commonwealth does anybody else know what it's like. When you hear people say the Ohio State University and you get really annoyed by it. Is anyone else anyone else getting like the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania? Your estate? Just get with it. Four states actually call themselves Commonwealths. Kentucky, Massachusetts, Virginia and Pennsylvania did not know that until this In Wisconsin Democrat Governor, Democrat secretary of State in Wisconsin and a lot of you, Wisconsinites listening know this Secretary of State doesn't run the elections on, Lee stated found that does this Wisconsin Elections Commission As six commissioners for Republicans to Democrats, the secretary of state in Wisconsin, though much like Illinois, I guess The secretary of state, has been the secretary of state for 37 straight years. He was also secretary of state from 75 to 79, then ran again and one in 83. He's been the secretary of state ever since, but there's nothing to do with us. They have the Wisconsin Elections Commission in Michigan, Of course, Democratic Governor Gretchen Whitmer Secretary of state Jocelyn Benson is also a Democrat. So You've got Democrats there, but President Joe Biden is up by so much there. It's going to be very tough for him to for President Trump To truly change things in Arizona recount is automatic if it's less or equal to 0.1% of the votes. And Joe Biden has a 1.3% block there, so it's not going to be an automatic recount The problem that has to be thought about if they're not automatic recounts. They cost money, All right. We'll do more of this After we check the news right now, with Vic von..

"19 is back in the news again. It's never really left. But it's being more prominent. I heard Joe Biden out in his rally, and Georgia came out of the bag. A basement is out in Georgia, and he's basically telling you that President Trump Has waved the white flag of surrender on covert 19. Do you really believe that? I mean, do you really believe that this president doesn't care about anything regarding Corona virus doesn't care about your family's doesn't care about those that have gotten sick doesn't care about those who have lost lives. I mean, Joe Biden is painting this pretty gruesome picture than you have Obama. Oh, bummer. As I like to call him out there screaming about, you know, Donald Trump didn't want to put the work in to this administer. Oration. Donald Trump didn't take the presidency seriously. Are you kidding me? This is the guy that's the most corrupt president in the history of the country. And he has the nerve to basically say that when he was on record, saying, How's Donald Trump going to bring all these manufacturing jobs back? Does he have some magic wand? Well, he must have had a magic wand because it was the greatest economy we've had in a generation. Lowest black unemployment, lowest Hispanic unemployment, lowest unemployment for women. I mean manufacturing jobs came back. I mean, come on, if covert 19 didn't happen, my gosh, imagine where we'd be today and we're starting to rebound were starting to recover. Not in Las Vegas, not in Nevada because we have governor Sistol acts still in a corner with his mask. And he hasn't really done much to actually create. Now. He's saying no, he's going to bring you know the convention's back next year and 50%. I just don't trust Governor Cyst Elect and again. It brings me back to what I talked about earlier with Barbara Saganowski, get these people out of office. It's grassroots. It starts now. Don't wait Another year, it starts now you need to start looking at candidates that can deliver. Let's get right back to our busy calls. Alex, you're next. Welcome to the program. Take it easy now. Steve is Latino that supports Donald Trump. You said earlier. There's people there's still have no idea who they're gonna vote for whether Trump or Biden Every case. I've been working with the Trump campaign and mainly with Hispanics, and let me tell you something. I'm running into a lot of Cubans who will definitely vote for Donald Trump. And I asked him why, and they tell me for those who still can't understand this. They say they can smell a Communist from quite a distance with the Democratic Party's moving. It's moving weight to the left the communist and I asked him what What is it that you see in the sea? I'm watching it. I'm just watching right from the media, the media not even reporting anything about this corruption with biting that tells you the Democrats have gotten the media under control that started in Cuba. The other thing is Chris warning shots heard something on the Internet. The other day were biting, said he was asked about the second Amendment and the guns, He said he would go after the guns. That's another thing that Cuban said that they take the guns away from you and control the media. You're very close to guess What Communists Just like what's going on in Cuba and have, like, you know, I was gonna say absolutely agree with the 100%. Yeah, And it's really said that there's people can't see that in. My parents taught me. You know what? Come here. Let's support the country. Um we have to make it stronger and better not turn it into the Third world countries that we came from. In these Americans with Hispanic or black or white, that are voting for Democrats. I. You know what you get me to do is get off your high horse. Get on a plane or get on a bike with a little more over these third world countries and see what it's like. And see how it you open your mouth against the government How that's gonna go for you. You know what's funny, Alex is that they have every opportunity with the power of the Internet toe actually do that. And I would probably venture to say many have, but I don't know if it's their dumb. I don't know if it's deception, which I believe it's probably the latter because if they did do that, Alex do the homework like you've done. They would see exactly what we all see, or at least those that have a conservative thought or viewpoint. Or at least a viewpoint that wants to be pro capitalism. Pro American exceptionalism, Not pro Communism in your right it goes to socialism goes to communism. He said. One point I appreciate the college. Ah, it goes to something you said as well about the guns, you know, protecting the guns. What concerns me, Alex. A great deal is how are we going to protect our gun rights with the second Amendment when we don't even go out on a limb to predict our speech with our First Amendment rights? I mean, think about that 17022575396 is that you went to the program. If you'd like to get in on the conversation, Vinnie, you're next. Welcome to the program. Hey, Vinnie, with us. All right. Looks like Vinay has left the building. Let's go right back over to Steve Steve. Welcome to the show. Hey, Steve. I got some stock market statistics may ease your mind tonight about the presidency. If, uh, the incumbent runs for reelection. It happened 39 times out of the last 45 presidents. Six presidents did not run for re election, He will win 29 out of 39 74.3% something else if the S and P 500 Has positive return in three consecutive months before the election that president will be on the incumbent will open again. 90% of the time. Last but not least. Is the S P had returns of about 15% average for the three years previous to the election. That President will win 87% of the time. So the people could say Trump has a 30% chance on. I got a few. Ah, a few disparities that you know you're right. And you know what? There's some real interesting models to that came out of USC and even Stanford. Regarding Yeah, models that they win and plugged in in terms of, you know, statistics and probability, and the model escapes me up in Stanford, but you can Google it and find it. There's a 91% probability that Donald Trump will get reelected now, summer out there saying No, it's a 91% probability that Joe Biden No you, Khun! Go see the model yourself. Just Google, You know, Stanford model 91% just put some key words in there and let's go suppressing that, too, And you'll see that even USC has done an experimental model and they're doing things a little differently to find out and gather data, and it's pretty incredible that you know Donald Trump wins. I believe over 54% in that regard, so The poles. As you know, Steve have wide they light on election night in 2016. If you recall Fox News Bret Bear was doing Excuse me. Brit Hume at the time was doing election coverage and he had Charles crowd heimer on before he had passed away. He asked Charles that night, Charles. How do you call this tonight? And Charles was supposed to be the Who's Who On calling elections? He said. This will be a landslide for Hillary Clinton. Well, we all know that didn't happen. Right. The one last note to the ratio of people at the event. Trump. Let's say the average is 5000 Biden 50 doesn't tell you something. Exactly. Exactly. This's why the cheating concerns me a great deal. Not not to the point that we're Donald Trump won't get elected. It's just if the cheating is so significant. And the race cannot be called on November 3rd. Then here we go. And are we back in the Supreme Court like we were with Gore versus Bush? You know, that's the thing that concerns me is the trickery of of the left and they're up to no good already..

"And she said, Um, and she talked about the bipartisan Politics and how you know everybody's getting far more angry. Everybody's getting angrier and angrier and more farther and farther and farther apart. And she said, I don't I can't agree with it. I don't I don't even know what to do. But she basically Set And then she said she's voting no on the procedure. But she said on the boat that you know Amy Conan Barrett, What's you know A C B A. C. B. Judge Barrett, she said, totally qualified to be a judge on the Supreme Court. She went through the motions with her. She interviewed her. She talked to her. She believes he's totally qualified. She doesn't believe in the process. But she believes he's qualified. That's why she's going to vote for that sort of there. But at the same time, she said, What we've done is hopeless. We put herself in a hopeless situation, she actually said. That she doesn't see you know how the Democrats the Republicans, she said. She's in favor of what we're trying to say common ground, but she doesn't see how I could possibly happen. And and and and she expressed her frustration that well, I'm gonna tell you something, Dean. In all honesty, the frustration that I see a zit American citizen is the fact that we have such a divided nation. There is no excuse, she said. I don't know there's hope. I have to agree with her. I mean, you know what's funny when you hear again we are. This is your party affiliation. When you hear that this is going to be that this is the most important election of your lifetime. And and the reasons behind it. This is the first time actually hear it. I'm like, you know what it might be because of the fact that he was in power. Makes the rules and unfortunately, the golden rule this year could be whoever wins and it's and it's scary, and Trump said it and one of the debates you said the first one, he said. You know, victory has winning. Voting has consequences if you win, and you know what these consequences will impact everybody. We're going to go on. We have a caller named Frank. And Frank wants to say, Asked about voting with the ballot and mailing in your ballot, Frank, go for it. My question. Is you going in your boat that let's just say somebody decides to send their ballot in after the fact it goes to a post office, obviously, But then where does it go? It goes to the goes to the it goes to the Voter Bureau, and they and they tally the votes. And when I can tell you is if you mail in your ballot and you voted in person, and they courted a coordinated and they see that you voted twice. You're gonna have a problem. No, I get that part but my questions other people from both sides of the fence taken these because yes, yes, definitely and that people from both sides, the monitors There's been arguments about that, because there's been some spots where there's only 111 side, not both sides and that I disagree with, but you know again when you look at it If you really want a fair on I'm about and fair and balanced voting process. It's my opinion that you should have equal equal part creepy bond. Both sides better. They're serving serving everybody that's involved. And if they're not, they're in balance. Then you got issues because that's how balance could be tossed, etcetera we really need and especially because it's 2020. There's no excuse for stuffing the ballot machines. There's no reason why we can't have it done The easy way. Onda again, I will sit here and say. Every state has early voting. I don't understand for the life of me. I'm 59 years of age. Why or how it's not possible that people cannot vote. Correctly and go down and get it done or fill out a ballot submitted properly. Now I can understand when you want you mail it. You're taking pot luck. I do believe it's smart to go down in person and make her and make your choice And I did it. I wasn't going to I refuse to vote via mail. It wasn't gonna happen on a frank on. I think it was Channel five. Mom. They did a pretty in depth interview with the secretary of state, and he took. That was your that was Roger Stroke that was the registrar. It was Joe glorious Secretary of state was that she's a female that Barbara Saganowski know the secretary of state is Marberger Sadowski. Then who That was the registrar You're talking about Joe. Gloria. Trust me, Okay? All right, so then that it was who was in charge of the mail in voting he took. He took the reporter through each step of the mail and ballot process. And what, exactly what they do, So I'm sure you could probably go to YouTube and find it Well, I didn't. And then I got a look at it this way. Then it just got to be a complete landslide. There's there's to be no way. No way that the Democrats have a shot in the back, but I don't care what anybody says. Good point. Well, I don't agree with that Big Democrats one last time with you, most of the unions back the Democrats and then in this state right now, But you know, you want to know Frank and Dean. Let me let me get some this up this way for you both to know that he was a dean. Trust me. I'm going to go on your side. You have to understand what I'm about to tell you. The reality. Frank is this The majority, So.

"And instead, were there. Come on, You know, it's funny. We're such a divided nation right now on so many levels and Dean behaved in a line ahead earlier, because he does he Dean is a computer guy. He understands the technology aspect. And frankly, we should be able to come up with a technology that is solid. It is consistent that could be monitored and not penetrated by outsiders and people convert without question. And right now we don't have that We have to do that. I could tell you that we have And we have the software engineers in this country to create that it wouldn't be a problem. Well, Pat, I didn't know this was a freeway. No, Dean Dean's my co host. He's on that. She's on the radio with us. Oh, I apologize. I didn't know that. Well, if I might still continue a bit, then I wanted. What I wanted to do was make a suggestion. And the suggestion would be that you issue a voting cards of people I'd like to have when I bought an orange in a supermarket and pick a bag because with purple and open it up. They had that transaction. Where your come true today earlier I think the point is, I don't care who people care. I don't care if you know our boat. The point is, there should be some way to issue me a card of open voting record. And we could begin the filtering this. You see what's happening here Right now. There's no way to validate the voting records because of the instability of the country, the needs of the process, right? To nobody. Nobody's coming up with a solution, either. That's the problem, too. You think Trump hasn't come up with a solution? Nobody's come up with a solution. We don't have a solution right now. Hey, but hold that thought you ready? Yeah, that's called tracking and trailing. You're absolutely correct. It's simply the problem is how we vote for the guy. We put him in office. We don't hold them accountable. They don't have 100 questions. We all agree to put somebody Have them answered. We don't agree how we removed him from office. We don't agree how we have public debate. But if you come down to the fact is that without the voting process of the foundation Everything else is secondary. Right? So you don't question I'm sorry to interrupt. No, no, he said, No. He's agreeing with you. The more you know question. So here, Here's a chance for us to evolve if you will to leap ahead and our evolution to settle our differences of this traumatic moment, and I think it's going to get words quite frankly. The point is, there's a chance for us to resolve our problems in our leadership is broken, and we try to sort that out. It's my belief again. It's a public employee unions. Those people become an iconic west the economy have become, they become a aristocratic elite who longer look at us is obviously looking at a servant with multiple women. So if you take that most negative aspect of it Somewhere out there Not be some damn leaders in Las Vegas or in Nevada. Stand up and say, Wait a second. I'm gonna bite the entire mutiny here. We're going to a culinary for 30 days straight. Eight hours a day. Every meeting is gonna be there. We're gonna have interrogated moments probing moment point counterpoint, emotional moments of only one rule. No live ammo. The point is, we need to have the men Janet Ip and the women. But these were different perspectives. Now keep that in mind, but the point is, we can't even find revolution. And what we both know me put it this way. The frustration when I see people burning, looting, beating people up in the middle of the street. And not the people doing it. But the government behind those people allowing this to occur, Gentlemen Warren Civil War Now. So my point is these in this moment of tragic or Travis here or go in a conflict which, if you take my my my my finest position about please Even this catastrophic moment. Where the hell have you dated that? Well, will. I gotta cut you off there. Could you come down a little, But I appreciate your point. I'm going to cover the bases with Dean and thank you so much. You know, Dean. It's interesting this week. I got into it with Republicans. Mary, you were saying you wanted to. You wanted to get me We were going to talk Democrat Republican and I will tell you I attacked the secretary of state and it's in Nevada. Which is Barbara Saganowski, she said. She's her Republican. That caller a rhino out loud and out. And initially when I called her out for not supporting The president because he's a Republican. I got it. Flack from Jim Wheeler up north who's a state senator, and he goes. You don't know what you're talking about Baba Baba and two days later. Guess what Barbara said gasket, in fact, did and did support Suing back the president. The bottom line is this. I think where will is right. We should be able to sit down and come up with great ideas. That's the name of that's why we have called a show called Common Ground, Right? This was your idea. I absolutely like. Love your idea. To come up with a plan. And come up with digitally. I don't see why we can't do it. I think it's ridiculous that we don't have a digital platform to vote on. I mean, I just can't understand in this day and age with all the technology that we have that we can't that No one's No one's. Not one person. I haven't heard. One person in Congress mentioned it. You suck. I came and argue with you on this point. It's killing me, you know, and and you know, I don't know whether it's because I don't know what people afraid of, honestly trumps afraid of mail in ballots. He can. I can honestly tell you the problem. I see with mail in ballots Nationwide Number one is to discount Can you get will Will's gone number One is counting Number 12 is getting him in timely. There's there's a lot of holes are hold. But you know what? The holes could you easily patched if they can come up with a program like you said, and make it easier, But they haven't By the way we have another caller shades on the flight line. J D. How are you? Welcome to common ground. Well, it's great to hear you're back on the on the radio again. Appreciate there, your friends or their team. I have to take issue, though, Dean, you say people are growing problem cheer for the election. There's an ad in the review Journal today. Work on Election Day and get paid $225 a day and all the early voting days get paid $14 an hour. Really now. The danger to these people. I would think you say they will not work because they're older. Or there's a lot of people out of work that air younger that may take a $225 Payday are today. That would be great. I thought most people were volunteers to be now they're paid by the by the county in the state, and it is that it's been nice labor for I don't know. 30 40 years now. You say that people would be afraid. Well, maybe the supermarket people should be afraid The truck drivers should be afraid. And you know, we've had 160 demonstrations in Las Vegas and Nevada since that fella out there in Minnesota was was so horribly killed. By the Cup, but not one time have I heard governor Sis like to say to the rioters, looters and protesters where a mask and stay six.

Thank you for taking the time today. Absolutely. I'm glad to speak with you this evening. Well, first, just tell us what things look like. From where you sit right now. We have sadly held a couple of titles that nobody would really want. Tohave as a state. We have very often hail that number one title, whether its rights of diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, obesity, etcetera. Of course, the challenge is specific to this pandemic are new and different, but they are layered on top of our existing challenges, so most of the major sized hospitals in the state have had challenges with capacity. Particularly ASI you capacity in these last few weeks, we say hospitals are already challenged with capacity and the numbers are going up there not flat or going down. So what does that means? You look to the next few weeks, so we have not yet we believe hit our peak nor have way certainly started on the downhill. Trans. So we anticipate and expect that these next few weeks will continue to be very challenging and, in fact will bring a couple of new challenges for us. As we try to get back into the routine off starting school, But we do anticipate that we will see Maur increasing our numbers of positive cases, which then, of course, a few weeks later, we have increased number of hospitalizations and a couple weeks after that increased numbers of deaths paint a picture for us When you say this is challenging for hospitals, and it's going to get worse. What does that actually look like in the I C U So are also use our full. I mean, that is the bottom line. We have been full for several weeks. When other hospitals around the state call us for help. We're unable to take their patients. We've had to assist a number of times and having patients transferred actually out of state. The patients with Cove it are staying typically longer than many of our critical care patients, so they're tying up beds for a longer period of time. As the tag goes on. What we're really seeing is a fatigue that our own particularly critical care teams, but also emergency department teams and our covert units for experiencing. And part of that challenge is we don't know the end point you're saying people are already overextended. They're stretched to the brink, and they're gonna have to keep stretching farther and extend themselves even more. That's right. We know this is not forever. You know, we know that there is a term limit. Own are acute dealings with this virus and this pandemic, But it is unknown at this point. And so that adds to the fatigue and to the concern that I have For our staff. Do you feel like state officials? Are your partners in this? There is no statewide mask requirement. Restaurants on bars are open. I mean, does it feel like politicians in the state are listening to you? When you say how dire the situation is, It is very difficult because the governor is practically on a daily basis. Adding new counties to the mass mandate as we have an increase of cases in particular counties, and I wish that he would proceed to a statewide mass mandate. But there are a lot of citizens in the state of Mississippi that would not Support that So are state officials are in a pickle honestly, because they're in a band between what the medical profession is telling them and what they know would be The opinion of a lot of the people in the state of Mississippi speaking from a medical standpoint, if you look at the data, what we have been doing has not changed the trajectory of our number of hospitalizations, the number of new cases, etcetera, we need to do something different. That's Dr Lu Ann Woodward, one of the leaders of the University of Mississippi Medical Center. She is also an emergency medicine physician, Dr Woodward. Thank you for talking with us. And good luck with your response. It's a pleasure. Thank you. Today, President Trump vowed to sue the state of Nevada over its moves to make voting easier during the pandemic. The Nevada Legislature led by Democrats passed a bill this weekend directing the state to automatically mail ballots to all registered voters for the November election. Democratic governor, Steve Cecil Act is expected to sign a legislation in a tweet this morning. President Trump called the bill quote in illegal late night coup, which he said quote made it impossible for Republicans to win the state. He ended his tweet with quote. See you in court exclamation point. Reporter Michelle Rendell's covers the state Legislature for the Nevada Independent, and we have her on the line to explain the new legislation and Republican objections to it High. Michelle Hey, Thanks for having me, Michelle, do we have any idea why mail in ballots has become a partisan issue? Yeah, I think we heard a lot from Republicans during the hearings for these bills. They say that if you can go to a grocery store or home Depot and wear a mask, then you can wear a mask to a polling place and show up in person. But this also, you know vastly expands the group of people who show up For an election. We had record turnout. When we had thie, mostly male primary election in June, it was 30% turnout, which is the highest it's been since 1986. If, as you mentioned Nevada use mail in ballots in the June primary, why was it necessary to enact this legislation? Well, we're getting really close to the election. Here We are less than 100 days from the November general election. I think a lot of the clerks are looking for some sort of guidance now are Republican Secretary of State Barbara Saganowski has made it clear that she wants to Return somewhat to normal in the upcoming general election and move away from the mostly male model that was in effect in the gym primary, and Democrats are concerned that things are not Getting better in the state of Nevada. You know, we're seeing more cases as we've re opened, and I think for a lot of people, it wasn't sitting well that we're going to plan Tio have a mostly in person election. When things were still so uncertain. One of the concerns. I know that President Trump expressed was about fraud associated with male and voting is that is that true? Do we see more cases of fraud with mail in ballots? Will Secretary of State Barbara so gassy, whose Republican acknowledged in these public hearings that they had not gotten any reports of fraud stemming from this June primary, which was Conducted mostly by melon and 98% of Nevada voters ended up casting their ballots by mail. So this this legislation that was passed over the weekend? Was there anything else in that bill? The bill does provide for an expansion of in person voting so during the June primary Put in Clark County, which is two million people. There were three in person voting locations. And so there was one location in particular where the last voter didn't cast a ballot. Tell around 3 a.m. And in Clark County, they're calling for at least 100 In person locations at the general election, and Michelle do we have any idea how they would staff additional polling places that has come up during the hearings at the Legislature is how are you going to get people out here? Especially if your typical volunteer is a senior who is especially vulnerable to coated? So there was discussion about let's reach out to the colleges. Let's see about the high school's trying to get younger people that would be willing to staff he's polling places. One other thing we heard from President Trump was a call for legal action. I wondering, Have any Nevada Republicans made a move to file a lawsuit or anything like that? There isn't lawsuit that was brought by Republicans against the June primary ahead of the November election. There has really been a whole lot aside from the president, threatening Tio taking about it to court on this issue. That is Michelle Rendell's of the Nevada Independent. Michelle. Thank you so much. Thanks So much for having me chimpanzees and gorillas may be our best known primate cousins, you might be less familiar with mouse lemurs, the world's smallest primates. They're tiny and adorable with big googly eyes and fairy tales, But they can be tough to spot in the forests of Madagascar and even tougher for scientists to identify When you go to the forest, and you will see him out three more. It's nighttime. Want T tell what s issues belongs to Marina Blanco is a research scientist at the Duke Leamer Center in North Carolina.

President Trump called the bill quote in illegal late night coup, which he said quote made it impossible for Republicans to win the state. He ended his tweet with quote. See you in court exclamation point. Reporter Michelle Rendell's covers the state Legislature for the Nevada Independent, and we have her on the line to explain the new legislation and Republican objections to it. Hi, Michelle. Hey, thanks for having me. Michelle, Do we have any idea why mail in ballots has become a partisan issue? Yeah, I think we heard a lot from Republicans during the hearings for these bills. They say that if you convey to a grocery store Home Depot and wear a mask, then you can wear a mask to a polling place and show up in person. But this also, you know, vastly expands Thie Group of people who show up For an election. We had record turnout. When we had thie, mostly male primary election in June, it was 30% turnout, which is the highest it's been since 1996. If, as you mentioned Nevada use mail in ballots in the June primary, why was it necessary to enact this legislation? Well, we're getting really close to the election. Here We are less than 100 days from the November general election. I think a lot of the clerks are looking for some sort of guidance now are Republican Secretary of State Barbara Saganowski has made it clear that she wants to Return somewhat to normal in the upcoming general election and move away from the mostly male model that was in effect in the gym primary, and Democrats are concerned that things are not Getting better in the state of Nevada. You know, we're seeing more cases as we've re opened, and I think for a lot of people, it wasn't sitting well that we're going to plan Tio have a mostly in person election. When things are still so uncertain. One of the concerns. I know that President Trump expressed was about fraud associated with male and voting is that is that true? Do we see more cases of fraud with mail in ballots? Well, Secretary of State Barbara Sagacity whose Republican acknowledged in these public hearings that they had not gotten any reports of fraud stemming from this June primary, which was Conducted mostly by melon and 98% of Nevada voters ended up casting their ballots by mail. So this this legislation that was passed over the weekend? Was there anything else in that bill? The bill does provide for an expansion of in person voting. So during the June primary in Clark County, which is two million people There were three in person voting locations and, oh, there was one location in particular where the last voter didn't cast a ballot till around 3 a.m. And in Clark County, they're calling for at least 100 In person locations at the general election, and Michelle, do we have any idea how they would staff additional polling places that has come up during the hearings at the Legislature is how are you going to get people out here? Especially if your typical volunteer is a senior? Who is especially vulnerable to Covad. So there was discussion about let's reach out to the colleges. Let's see about the high school's trying to get younger people that would be willing to staff he's polling places. One other thing we heard from President Trump was a call for legal action. I'm wondering, Have any Nevada Republicans made a move to file a lawsuit or anything like that? There isn't lawsuit that was brought by Republicans against the June primary ahead of the November election. There hasn't really been a whole lot aside from the president threatening Tio taking about it to court on this issue. That is Michelle Rendell's of the Nevada Independent. Michelle. Thank you so much. Thanks so much for having me. Chimpanzees and gorillas may be our best known primate cousins. You might be less familiar with mouse lemurs, the world's smallest primates. They're tiny and adorable, with big googly eyes and fairy tales. They can be tough to spot in the forests of Madagascar and even tougher for scientists to identify when you go to the forest, and you will see your mouth remark is night time to actually tell what species belongs to.
