Voters in Las Vegas Registered Home Addresses as Casinos and Strip Club, Says Lawsuit 

A conservative activist group has filed a lawsuit against Clark County and its head election registrar, Loreno Portillo. The lawsuit is over claims that voters in the Las Vegas district have registered their home addresses at various improbable locations across Sin City.

That includes one voter who apparently resides at Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club (pictured) and another at Binion’s Gambling Hall, one of the city’s oldest casinos

The Public Interest Legal Foundation (PILF) filed the suit late last week, backed by two Nevada voters. 

“In Clark County, people are registered to vote from strip clubs, casinos, gas stations, and more crazy addresses where it appears no one could reasonably live,” said PILF President J. Christian Adams in a press release. 

“We are asking the court to force Nevada election officials to investigate any improper commercial addresses on the voter roll. We must have this fixed before the 2024 election. Otherwise, some of these strip clubs and casinos will receive ballots in the mail.”

Those looking to exercise their democratic right to vote in Nevada are required to list their actual residence where they live on their registration form. 

Despite that, PILF has found at least several dozen people who registered commercial addresses on the voter roll forms. 

To confirm what it suspected, the group sent out reporters to film themselves visiting the registered locations and asking after the voters who supposedly live there. 

Places voters were registered to included Penn Entertainment’s M Resort Casino, Binion’s Gambling Hall, Larry Flynt’s Hustler Club, Harry Reid International Airport, a lubricant manufacturer, U.S. Department of Agriculture offices, and several empty or disused lots around the city. 

Clark County is home to the majority of Nevada’s registered voters. More than 90,000 ballots in the Silver State were mailed out to incorrect or “bad” addresses in the 2022 midterms, representing around 5% of the state’s total.

The Democrat candidate Senator Catherine Cortez won that year’s contest, beating Republican Adam Laxalt by 7,928 votes.

It’s unclear how many incorrectly addressed ballots didn’t pass further checks and ended up being counted as legit votes. 
“We follow state and federal law in how we clean our voter rolls,” said Washoe County spokeswoman Bethany Drysdale, in a statement sent to the New York Post this week.
