NORTH LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County commissioners voted to certify the 2022 midterm election results on Friday.

“There were no tabulation errors in the 913 precincts,” says Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria. “As the appointed registrar of voters of Clark County, Nevada I do here by certify the Clark County board of commissions that the results of the canvass of this election are deemed certifiable.”

Gloria says out of the roughly 680,000 ballots cast, there were 629 discrepancies for several reasons — from people leaving voting machines to voting in the wrong precincts. He explained the issues were not enough to impact races.

Next, the results will be sent to the Nevada Secretary of State’s office for certification.

This is the last election for Gloria in his role. The county says he is set to retire.
