Nevada’s Lander County, where Trump won, to replace voting machines
CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - Local officials in rural Nevada are replacing election equipment manufactured by Dominion Voting Systems.
The Lander County Commission on Thursday approved purchasing new voting machines from ES&S after months of discussion about local election procedures and a proposal to hand-count ballots without machine assistance.
Though former President Donald Trump won almost 80% of the vote in the county, it’s one of several in Nevada where officials have called into question the accuracy of the national vote and considered changing vote-counting equipment.
Local election officials have expressed confidence in Dominion equipment. Claims about the company’s equipment being hacked have been largely debunked.
