CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) – It could be the first lawsuit of Election Day. Donald Trump’s campaign is alleging polling place “anomalies” during early voting in the Las Vegas area last week.

A lawsuit filed Tuesday in Nevada court asks that records from four early voting spots that allegedly stayed open too late last Friday be impounded and preserved.

Long lines kept polls open past the 7 p.m. posted closing time at locations that included a Mexican market and several shopping centers. Officials say at one site, the last voter cast a ballot after 10 p.m.

Criticism is also coming from state Republican Party chief Michael McDonald.

But Democrat Hillary Clinton’s campaign is dismissing the Nevada case in a Twitter message, calling it “a frivolous lawsuit.”
