An official in Clark County, Nevada, said Thursday afternoon that he is concerned about the safety of his election staff, who are counting some of the final votes remaining in the state.
In a press conference, Clark County Registrar Joe Gloria gave an update on the progress they have made counting votes but said he is concerned about the safety of his staff, as there have been protesters on both sides demanding results to the election and that every vote is counted properly.
“I could tell you that my wife and my mother are very concerned for me, but we have security here. We have law enforcement who are protecting us. I am concerned for the safety of my staff. We’re putting measures into place to make sure that we have the security that’s necessary,” Gloria said. “Again, we’re going to begin to monitor the vehicles as they come in to make sure that they should be here and that they’re parking properly so that we don’t prevent our employees from having an issue getting in and out of the facility.”
