LAS VEGAS (AP) — Clark County officials are pushing back on insinuations from Donald Trump and the Nevada Republican Party chairman that polls were wrongly kept open late.

GOP Chairman Michael McDonald said at a Trump rally in Reno on Saturday that a poll was open until 10 p.m. Friday “so a certain group could vote” even though it was supposed to close at 7 p.m.

He questioned whether the election was free because of the move.

McDonald appeared to be referencing an early voting site at Cardenas supermarket in a heavily Hispanic neighborhood.

Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin says elections officials often keep sites open to accommodate all voters in line, and said multiple sites accepted voters past their posted closing times.

Trump criticized the late closure and said the system is rigged.

  1. One good thing about Agent Orange is that he let these racists feel free to come out and expose themselves for what they really are. Hopefully we will find out on November 8th that there are a lot less of them than they would like to believe.
