Nevada Election Livestream Goes Black Overnight

Nevada Republican Senate candidate Adam Laxalt, who announced Thursday that his opponent has no path to victory, is currently leading in his race against Democrat Catherine Cortez 49% to 48%.

“We feel really, really strongly about where this race is heading…” Laxalt commented after he joined Tucker Carlson Thursday night “…[Cortez] does not have the amount of votes left to be able to catch us. She’d have to win by over 63%.”

Approximately 90% of the vote is in with counties across the state still tabulating ballots, according to The Gateway Pundit.

In an effort to assure voters that the voting process is conducted honestly, numerous counties have been live-streaming ballot counts.

These attempts to ease voter angst likely went out the window after Washoe County’s live stream went black to viewers at 11:24 p.m. Wednesday.

KRNV reporter Ben Marigott posted about the incident Thursday.

“Looks like Washoe County’s live stream, which has been showing 4 angles of the ballot counting rooms, did go dark last night at 11:24p and stayed dark until just before 8a this morning,” he wrote.

“We’ve reached out to Washoe County to ask what happened.”

A Washoe County press release claimed that all staff left for the night 60 minutes before the live stream went offline, not returning until 7 a.m. the next day.

“The courtesy cameras are connected to a computer application designed for livestream events. They intermittently lose connection with the application,” officials claimed in the press release.

Washoe County’s recommendations claimed that the technology used for the live stream could not keep up with the demands of an election timeframe that ended up unexpectedly going beyond election night. In order to alleviate the issues, the statement bizarrely said, “In the future, we will look for a solution that would prevent software disruptions or simply not offer a courtesy livestream feed.”

The county’s live stream has been reposted since and can be found below. It finally returned Friday morning, according to The Gateway Pundit.
