I am old school. I believe in voting on Election Day, and I believe in the time allotted to vote. If some of these counties across America would have taken a chance to look at the election in general, they might decide to expand voter poll hours way before Election Day.
When I see tricks like this or early voting, I pause to think that’s how Democrats cheat the system. I won’t go into how because I am not there to see anything, but I feel in my gut, Democrats cheat voters with these two additions to Election Day.
and rightfully so…Trump campaign sues in Nevada over Las Vegas polling place hours https://t.co/UhrB4qMdJ2

The Trump campaign took its first step to challenge the election results in Nevada, a hotly contested battleground state.
In a lawsuit filed today, the campaign accused the Clark County registrar of keeping an early voting location open for two extra hours to aid Democratic turnout.
Wayne Thorley, deputy secretary of state for elections, told POLITICO the state is reviewing the complaint.
The complaint alleges a polling location in the county that was scheduled to close at 8 p.m. on Nov. 4 stayed open to accommodate everyone who got in line until 10 p.m. The Republican poll watcher said the extension allowed 150 to 300 people to join the line, according to court documents.
The lawsuit also accused Democrats of distributing literature within the 100-foot no-campaigning zone.
After complaining to the state official overseeing elections, the Trump campaign is seeking an emergency order to set aside the ballots and voting machines from four early-voting locations so that they can be adjudicated after the election.
Diana Orrock, the Republican National Committeewoman for Nevada and a vocal Trump ally, said she was unaware of the lawsuit before POLITICO contacted her.
“I know that the [Clark County] registrar was on TV this morning saying that anybody who’s in line was allowed to participate in the voting process until all of them came through,” she said. “If that’s what they did, I don’t have a problem with that … I don’t know that filing a suit’s going to accomplish anything.”
But Orrock did wonder why the sudden rush to vote early came in the closing hours of the final day. “We have two weeks of early voting and the fact that there’s a rush with a bunch of people right before closing on the last day of early voting, looks suspicious to anybody under normal circumstances,” she said.
