Last week, when offering thoughts based on information that voting totals on the Secretary of State’s website, we mistakenly went off the numbers that were presented after the 2020 election was concluded. We didn’t take into account that fact that while the voting might have been done – the counting of ballots wasn’t…
The perfect example for the error of going on the earlier reported totals is the ballot question that Nevada Farm Bureau was supporting for passage. In last week’s newsletter, prepared a couple of days after the voting was done, stated…
“Overall Nevada voters (based on preliminary numbers) “No” won by 31,751 votes,
with all counties, except in Clark County, turning out majority votes against passage
of Question 1.”
Since reporting that and writing this “update” a week after the election was completed…the margin of more “No” votes is now only 11,586 (with a possible further change still to come since even on November 11th, the counting continues).
The numbers that we crunched on a county-by-county basis a week ago (based on the 31,751 advantage of “No” totals) showed that every county, but Clark had tallied more “No” votes. Clark county had an advantage of “Yes” votes of 76,903.
Since those premature statistics were considered to be totals, revisiting the county-by-county later totals (carried out on November 11) showed that every county, but Clark still had majority votes of “No”. Four counties (Esmeralda, Eureka, Mineral and White Pine) had the same numbers of more “No” votes as from the initial analysis. Storey county did narrow the margins of more “No” votes by 3. Every other county, except for Clark, increased the gap of having more “No” votes.
Clark county increased the number of having more “Yes” votes by just under 25,000. The margin of “Yes” votes for Clark County (Nov. 11th) shows 101,804 more “Yes” votes on this question than “No” votes.
