Under state law, ballots postmarked by Election Day will still be counted if they arrive by Tuesday, Nov. 10. Clark County said Thursday it did not expect to complete counting the bulk of its mail votes until this weekend.

The Trump campaign announced Thursday a federal lawsuit in the state of Nevada, claiming they had evidence of voter irregularities. On Friday, the Democratic National Committee and Nevada Democratic Party filed a motion against the lawsuit saying the claims "are too late, rife with procedural deficiencies and meritless," reports KLAS. 

In addition, the news outlet reports the campaign dropped a separate lawsuit filed against Clark County lawsuit after reaching an agreement to add more poll observers. Observers have been allowed but the Trump campaign wanted additional access, according to KLAS.

Judges in Michigan and Georgia have since dismissed Trump campaign lawsuits.
