That includes Nevada, where cameras set up to monitor ballot workers suddenly went dark at a vote-counting facility earlier this week -- even as election results from that state still are not finalized for governor and U.S. senator, as of this writing (several days after the election).
"Cameras at the vote counting facility in a Nevada county still counting midterm election votes stopped broadcasting overnight, officials said on Nov. 10," The Epoch Times reported. "The livestream computer application that provides the feeds 'lost connection with' the cameras at 11:24 p.m. on Wednesday, according to Bethany Drysdale, a spokesperson for Washoe County."
The report noted further that all staffers left for the night around an hour before the cameras mysteriously shut off, and no one reportedly returned until 7 a.m. the next morning, according to officials (where have we heard this before?). Officials went on to say that the connection to the cameras was finally restored around 8 a.m. Thursday, meaning they were dark for several hours, giving those who may have 'nefarious intentions' plenty of opportunity to plant fake ballots.
"The Washoe County security administrator was said to have reviewed security cameras at the building, which run on a different system. The cameras showed that no person entered the ballot room or Registrar’s Office while the live feeds were cut off," The Epoch Times added, but that isn't likely to instill confidence since it seems plenty suspicious that the cameras just happened to go off during vote counting.
"Security personnel are working to make that footage public," the outlet continued.
Meanwhile, Arizona GOP gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake blasted her Democratic opponent, Katie Hobbs -- who, as secretary of state is in charge of the messed up ballot counting system in the state -- and the fact that it is likely to take a week or more for Arizonans to learn who won key races.
“It’s embarrassing the way elections are run in Arizona. This is why I’ve been sounding the alarm since 2020. Against the fake news saying, ‘Oh, you can’t question our elections, how dare you! You’re an election denier!’ You know what? This is why we’ve been questioning them,” Lake explained to Turning Point USA co-founder and executive director Charlie Kirk’s podcast on Thursday.

“We’re going to win this, and there’s not a darn thing they can do to stop it,” Lake said. “We The People are taking our government back,” she predicted while also blasting her opponent for botching ballot counting.
“This is just an embarrassment, and the people of Arizona are sick and tired of elections being run like we’re in some banana republic,” she added.
Last month, Lake noted in an interview that one of her first actions as governor would be to significantly reform the state’s voting system, largely by shortening it.
“Our Constitution says Election Day. It doesn’t say election season, election month. And the longer you drag that out, the more fraught with problems there are,” Lake told ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl.
“As governor, would you seek to change the election laws? And specifically, would you look to limit early voting and mail-in voting in Arizona?” Karl asked after introducing the segment by claiming that Lake was the most vociferous in pushing “Donald Trump’s lies” about the 2020 election.
“I don’t know exactly how we’ll do it, but we will secure our elections, restore faith in our elections, make sure our elections are honest and transparent,” Lake said.
Karl countered: “I assume everybody wants that. But specifically early voting and mail-in voting, which you’ve been very critical of — would you seek to limit it?”
“I think, you know, a lot of things going back to when I first started voting back in the 80s, we had Election Day. Our Constitution says Election Day. It doesn’t say election season, election month. And the longer you drag that out, the more fraught with problems there are,” said Lake. “We just saw problems this week with Katie Hobbs, my opponent. She just put out — sent out 6,000 ballots that went – the wrong type of ballots to the wrong people.”
