ACLU Sues Nye County Nevada for Counting Ballots by Hand and Not Relying Completely on Questionable Voting Machines

Nye County Nevada

Years ago the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) was a civil rights organization that valued free speech, free thought, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, and a free society.

Today, the ACLU ignores individual rights and is just another branch of the Socialist left pushing total government control of your life.

The ACLU for some reason is suing Nye County Nevada for counting their ballots by hand and not by machine. It’s much harder for Democrats to cheat when they can’t rely on the voting machines. See the 2020 election to find out more.

UPDATE:  The Gateway Pundit spoke with Nye County Clerk Mark Kampf who told us Nye County is counting the ballots by hand AND they are running comparative analysis with a tabulator count.  Kampf told us the process is moving along and they have plenty of volunteers from the county to complete the counts.

Las Vegas 5 reported:

 Early voting is well underway across Nevada two weeks until Election Day.

In Nye County, a new process to count ballots will be used this election. That hand counting will start later this week with the ballots that have already come in during early voting, but the American Civil Liberties Union of Nevada (ACLU) is suing the county over the new election process. FOX5 spoke with Nye County Clerk Mark Kampf Monday, who said the hand counting will start on Wednesday morning, but the ACLU has challenged their proposed process and says they still are looking for clarity about how it will work.

“This isn’t about being partisan. It is about protecting our democracy,” stated Athar Haseebullah, the Executive Director of ACLU of Nevada. Haseebullah says Nye County’s new hand counting of ballots approved by Nye County Commissioners in a 5-0 vote back in March raises serious concerns.

“They had no real processes for how they wanted to do it, it was totally disorganized and chaotic and all fueled by conspiracy theories,” Haseebullah asserted.

The ACLU says it is almost unheard of not to use machines to count ballots and instead rely on people to count them by hand.

“I believe this is the largest county in the country that would have attempted to do this,” Haseebullah revealed.

Esmeralda County in Nevada has done hand counts before but there’s a big difference.

“They have about 300, a little over 300 voters… This has never been done in a county of this size where there are 30,000 voters,” Haseebullah contended.
