Democrats Drop Bid To Block Nevada's June Mail-In Primary

RENO, Nev. (AP) — Democrats have dropped efforts to block the state's mail-in primary election June 9.

Tuesday's move comes after Clark County agreed to provide more in-person polling places in Las Vegas. Election officials also agreed to other changes intended to protect the rights of elderly and disadvantaged voters.

Lawyers for Nevada's Democratic Party and others were scheduled to argue in state court in Carson City for an injunction expanding the number of in-person polling places and mandating mailing of ballots to all registered voters.

The primary is expected to be conducted almost entirely by mail to guard against the spread of COVID-19.
