CARSON CITY, Nev. – On December 6, 2023, all six individuals who allegedly falsely pledged Nevada’s electoral votes in an effort to sabotage the results of the 2020 election were indicted by a Nevada grand jury. Following Attorney General Aaron Ford’s press conference in which he underscored the importance of investigating the fake electors in the state, All Voting is Local Action Nevada State Director Kerry Durmick issued the following statement:

“The indictment of Nevada’s fake electors is a stark reminder of the vigilance required to safeguard our democracy. Nevadans’ sacred right to vote, and have that vote be counted, must be protected and respected. If there is any indication that an elected official has undermined the sanctity of our elections, they should be held accountable for their actions after a thorough investigation. If it is found that the allegations to overturn the results of the 2020 election are true, the necessary accountability measures must be followed. 

“However, we must continue to strengthen the foundation of our democracy and restore faith in our elections. Therefore, we expect the next step to be the immediate resignation of Storey County Clerk Jim Hindle, because it would be difficult for him to remain in his role without our full trust as the legal proceedings continue. As a fake elector, Hindle should not be in such a position overseeing our elections.”

In December 2020, in an alleged effort to sabotage the 2020 presidential election, six officials, including a party chair, party official, former state attorney general, and Senate candidate, met in Carson City and cast an alternate slate of electors for Trump. Afterward, it was reported that they eventually sent their electoral votes to D.C., hoping their fellow party members in Congress would certify their fake slate on January 6, 2021. All six were indicted last week.
