"I got a call the other day saying I needed to check ballottrax and my vote was listed as provisional. And then I got another call yesterday morning telling me that I needed to come down here by 5:00 p.m. today in order for my vote to count."
It's just kind of frustrating. Luckily, I am off today because I'm transitioning between careers, but I just feel bad for all of those that went and spent the time to vote or even early vote like I did. And now they either don't have the time or the means of transportation to get down here or have the day off work so their votes are not going to count. And that's very upsetting."

8. SOUNDBITE (English) Susan Franklin, Nevada Voter:
"Well, I voted in person. So, because I'm a registered voter and I never received a mail in. And so I said, well, I'm going down in person then. So...just moved, so my license, I guess, didn't match the address I gave them, so she said go down and check to make sure your vote was counted."

"I actually had changed my registration a while ago, and when I went to vote, it was incorrect. So I was asked..I asked if I could change it at the time and was told yes. And then when I went to check on my vote, it's a provisional ballot. So in my case, I guess that's considered an error if you change your party."
"So, for some reason, we're always behind and I'm disappointed. I thought we would be more on the cutting edge because of all the other technology that goes on in our city. So I'm pretty disappointed and embarrassed, but I'm still proud to be a Nevadan."
Democrat Joe Biden nearly doubled his lead over President Donald Trump in Nevada as officials released more election results Friday.
Biden was leading by 626,211 votes to Trump's 605,669 votes, growing his lead to 20,542. A day earlier, Biden was leading by 11,438 votes.
Nevada has six Electoral College votes and could be decisive as Biden closes in on the 270 needed to win the White House. It’s too early to call the contest, with votes still being counted.
Results from about 30,000 mail ballots were released Friday.
No Republican presidential candidate has carried Nevada since 2004, but it has remained a battleground. Trump narrowly lost the state in 2016.
Clark County's top election official has said the focus is on accuracy over speed and that the large number of mail-in ballots is new and making the counting process take longer than normal.
Registrar Joe Gloria says that in addition to Friday's results, officials still need to process about 63,000 mail-in ballots and about 60,000 provisional ballots, many of which were cast by people taking advantage of a new law allowing voters to register or update their registration at the polls.
Gloria said the bulk of the mail-in ballots should be counted by Saturday or Sunday.
The state mailed ballots to all active registered voters this year because of the coronavirus pandemic, a move that the Trump campaign previously challenged, claiming it would lead to fraud.
Some Las Vegas area voters were lining up outside the Clark County Election Center on Friday to address issues with ballots that had been designated as provisional.
The last Las Vegas-area voters cast their ballots shortly after 9 p.m. Tuesday after a court order kept 30 polling places open later in Nevada’s largest county, where some polling places had been slow to open.
