Reno, Nevada. Oct. 7, 2016. The Washoe County District Attorney's Office released the following statement:
"The Washoe County District Attorney’s office has received the Court’s decision on the emergency motion for preliminary injunction in the Sanchez v. Cegavske, et al. case and is in the process of reviewing it with our clients. Washoe County believes that its decisions in regard to all locations for early voting and Election Day voting for the 2016 General Election were based on population, fairness, and in accordance with controlling federal and state law.
Nevertheless, the Court’s Order must be either followed or appealed; and Washoe County will make that determination after having a full and thorough opportunity to review the Court’s decision."
Washoe County will not comment further on the matter at this time.
