The Nevada Secretary of State’s office launched an investigation after some residents reported being told they had voted in the recent primary election despite not casting ballots.

The errors were attributed to technical issues in the way county voter data was uploaded to the state database.

Some voters were incorrectly listed as having voted by mail.

Registered Republican Daphne Lee said, “It’s just so frustrating.”

“This makes everyone uncomfortable,” she added.

The Secretary of State said the data should be corrected within two days and the vote counting was not affected.

Secretary of State Cisco Aguilar’s Office wrote in a statement, “The issue was as follows: on a nightly basis, each county uploads their voter registration data to the Secretary of State’s database, which executes code to create the single statewide voter registration file that users see when they log into vote.nv.gov. The legacy systems used by a number of the counties require additional steps be taken to ensure that voters who did not return their ballot do not have vote history; some of those steps were not taken, which resulted in inaccurate data.”

The state Republican Party chairman said any election irregularities must be thoroughly investigated to maintain public trust in the electoral process.

Chairman Michael McDonald said, “We take these reports very seriously.”

“The cornerstone of our Republic is the trust and confidence of the American people in the electoral process. Any indication of irregularities must be thoroughly investigated to ensure the integrity of our elections.”

Nevada has universal mail voting for all registered voters.
