Amid fears of voting machines, Nevada approves hand counting


Associated Press/Report for America

But the regulations will not apply to the one county that has committed to hand counting. That’s because Nye County will also use a parallel machine-counting process alongside its hand count. Interim Nye County Clerk Mark Kampf said in an interview earlier this month that all of the county’s will resemble mail-in ballots.
