The Clark County Registrar of Voters admitted that several polling sites experienced technical issues Tuesday morning, prompting some voters to be unable to cast their ballots.

In an impromptu news conference conducted at the Clark County Election Department, Joe Gloria said Tuesday night said that they now work.

"We don't anticipate having any trouble in having extended hours at any of our facilities," Gloria said.

The county's head of elections briefly touched on the Trump campaign and Nevada Republican's Party lawsuit,

A Clark County spokesperson told News 3 that 29 voting locations opened after 7:10 a.m. "due to technical issues."


Tuesday's lawsuit was filed just hours before polls were set to close in Nevada's most populous county.

The complaint ultimately led to the extension of polling hours at 30 sites across Las Vegas, made possible by a court order issued in Nevada's Eighth Judicial Court.

The majority of those issues dealt with connectivity," Gloria said, adding that issues were also experienced with signing people in to vote.

Several polling places experienced connectivity issues throughout the day, and Gloria compared the issue to network congestion and heavy network demand.

When asked about whether the issues impacted voting machines, Gloria admitted, "In some cases, we did have issues."

Those issues, however, have been addressed and Gloria thanked the entire department for responding promptly to those issues across the county.

As of result of those voting extensions, results in the Silver State were not expected to be released until after 8:00 p.m. PT.
