Voters cast their ballots Tuesday, Nov. 3, 2020, at Roy Martin Middle School.

Wed, Nov 18, 2020 (3:56 p.m.)

Unknown people are contacting voters and giving them inaccurate information about whether their ballots were counted, according to the Clark County Election Department.

Only the Election Department and the Nevada Secretary of State’s Office are privy to information about whether votes were counted, officials said in a news release.

 “Also, no one, not even anyone at the Election Department, is able to see who you voted for,” said the release, noting that voters have been asked to provide personal information such as their dates of birth or Social Security numbers.

The announcement comes as President Donald Trump’s campaign continues to contest the results of the Nov. 3 election. Trump’s campaign is alleging widespread voter fraud, although it has provided no evidence.

President-elect Joe Biden beat Trump in Nevada by 33,596 votes.
