Cameras located at a vote counting facility in Nevada Washoe County, who had yet to fully complete the counting of votes, stopped broadcasting overnight. The livestream computer software which provides the video feeds lost connection with the cameras around 11:25pm on Wednesday, according to Bethany Drysdale, a spokesperson for Washoe County. Washoe County released a press release regarding the incident. It says:
The livestream computer application lost connection with the courtesy cameras at 11:24 p.m. the evening of November 9. All staff had left for the night about 60 minutes earlier and did not arrive back at the office until 7 a.m. Connection was restored at 7:53 a.m. the morning of November 10.
They go on to say:
The Washoe County security administrator has reviewed the building’s security cameras. According to the Washoe County security administrator, that footage shows the parking garage, the hallway between the garage, and the entry doors to the Registrar’s Office. He has affirmed that no one entered the ballot room or Registrar’s Office during the time that the courtesy livestream was down. Security and Technology Services is working to put that footage into a viewable file that can be provided to the public.
Staff badge reports have also been pulled to ensure that no one entered the area during that time, with none found.

They also suggest that they may attempt to fix the root cause, but if they don’t do that, then they will consider not providing the video stream altogether.
