Washoe County, Nevada Election Livestream Goes DARK Overnight

As most of you know, Republican Adam Laxalt is currently leading Democrat Catherine Cortez 49% to 48% in Nevada’s U.S. Senate race.

Laxalt earlier on Thursday announced that his opponent had no path to victory.

As of right now, only 90% of the vote is in and counties all across the state are still counting ballots.

In order to have some kind of “transparency” many of these counties have been live-streaming ballot counting.

One of those counties counting ballots while live streaming is Washoe County.

Last night, however, “transparency” went out the window because at 11:24 PM Washoe County’s live stream went offline which led to viewers staring at black screens.


In an official press release, Washoe County claimed that all staff left for the night 60 minutes before the live stream went offline.

In that press release officials from Washoe County stated “The courtesy cameras are connected to a computer application designed for livestream events. They intermittently lose connection with the application.”

In conclusion, Washoe County, bizarrely stated, “In the future, we will look for a solution that would prevent software disruptions or simply not offer a courtesy livestream feed.”

So basically next time they will just get rid of the cameras altogether so voters will be in the dark completely.

UPDATE: It appears the live-stream is back online on Friday morning.
