Attorney General Ford Congratulates Winners of Elections, Thanks Voters and Election Workers

November 24, 2020

Carson City, NV  Today, following the Nevada Supreme Court’s certification of the State’s elections results, Attorney General Aaron D. Ford issued the following statement. The Supreme Court praised the efforts of the State and specifically Nevada Secretary of State Cegavske’s ‘exemplary’ work in ensuring a safe and secure election during COVID-19.   

“First and foremost, I want to congratulate our local winners, President-Elect Joe Biden, and Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris on their wins in Nevada,” said AG Ford. “I would also like to congratulate the American people and every voter in this election for making your voice heard this year and participating in our democratic process.”

“As our Supreme Court Justices noted, this election was handled ‘properly, reliably and with integrity,’ which is a standard we can always expect from the State of Nevada,” AG Ford continued. “I commend Secretary Cegavske and her office for their dedication to ensuring that every eligible voter in Nevada had the opportunity to participate in this election in a way that did not compromise the safety or efficiency of our election process. I would also like to express my gratitude to all election workers for their commitment to this election.”

The State of Nevada took swift action to secure our elections process in light of the global pandemic. After the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued its guidance in advance of election day encouraging mail-in voting methods, Governor Sisolak immediately convened a Special Legislative Session to pass Assembly Bill 4 which provided every active registered voter in Nevada with a mail-in ballot and created options for Nevadans to vote in a manner consistent with public health concerns.

The meeting of the Presidential Electors is scheduled for December 14, 2020.
