"It looks like Democrats could be facing a repeat of the fiasco we saw in Iowa two weeks back, if you can believe it," Ingraham said Friday night. "Experts are warning of potential technical snafus.

He told the AP he won't commit to same-day election results," she continued.
 
"Are we a Third World country?" the host asked rhetorically. "We can't announce the election results the night of the election?"

On Friday, the Nevada Democratic Party notified about 1,000 early-voters that their ballots had been voided for errors, according to a report in the The Nevada Independent. All told, the number of voided ballots add up to about 2.8 percent of the 36,000 ballots cast in early voting. 
 
Election officials added that they are counting an additional 39,000 ballots, which may uncover more ballots that need to be voided. 
 
DNC Chairman Tom Perez said Tuesday that he didn't know when final voting tallies results will be released.
 
“We’re going to do our best to release results as soon as possible, but our North Star, again, is accuracy,” Perez told reporters after touring an early voting site in Las Vegas. 

Ingraham also predicted that Sanders will win Nevada, with the race ultimately coming down to the self-described Democratic socialist from Vermont against former New York City mayor Bloomberg. 

"Bernie is sure to win tomorrow," Ingraham said Friday. "And after that, the order of finish doesn't make that much of a difference. And I feel confident declaring tonight that this race is shaping up to be a two-man show: Sanders versus Bloomberg."
 
Sanders currently holds a commanding lead in the RealClearPolitics (RCP) betting odds with a 51.5 percent chance of capturing the nomination, while Bloomberg has surged to second place with a 22.6 percent chance.
