A new lawsuit in Nevada challenging election results in the state claims numerous irregularities including 15,000 votes cast by people from out of state and as many as 200,000 ballots where the signature verification done by a machine was unreliable.

The suit, filed on behalf of the six Republican electors from the state designated for President Donald Trump, accused that Nevada officials ''developed and implemented an election system that was highly susceptible to fraud and abuse,'' the result of which renders the election ''illegitimate.''

The case, filed in First Judicial District Court in Carson City, seeks that Trump be declared winner of the presidential election in the state.

Former Vice President Joe Biden leads Trump by about 33,000 votes out of more than 1.4 million cast, according to results posted by The Associated Press.

The most serious claim in the suit revolves around Clark County, centered around Las Vegas, and its use of Runbeck Election Services’ Agilis Ballot Sorting System machines.

With Nevada one of eight states — plus the District of Columbia — that conducted its election via a universal absentee ballot system, meaning that every registered voter was sent a ballot whether or not it was requested, the Republican electors claim the state received 8½ times the number of votes as it did in the 2016 election, and Clark County received 10 times more ballots.

''Clark County officials and election personnel were not prepared to accurately and efficiently verify signatures on the mail-in ballots with election personnel as required by law,'' the lawsuit states. It says Clark County then used the Agilis system, the reliability of which ''has not been established by scientific study and testing to a degree that warrants their use in elections.''
