LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County released the updated totals for the recount in the Clark County Commission District C race.
Friday, the county reported Democrat Ross Miller's vote total was 76,633 with Republican Stavros Anthony garnering 76,603. Miller increased his margin of victory to 30 votes and thanked the staff for working 18 days amid the pandemic.
I’d like to extend my deepest gratitude to the staff and volunteers who worked 18 hour days in the middle of a pandemic to uphold my victory. Now, I’m focused on getting to work speeding our recovery from Covid and assisting to restore our economy.— Ross Miller (@rossjmiller) December 11, 2020
A Clark County spokesperson said the difference is the result of 74 additional Commission District C votes in the recount and that the team is reviewing documentation to find an explanation for the difference.
Miller originally won the race by 10 votes and last week Anthony filed for the recount.
Anthony, the City of Las Vegas Ward 4 Councilman, called the District C election a "disaster" after Friday's announcement.
District C election is a disaster. I’m up by 2700 Election Day. Weeks later down 10 with 139 discrepancies. Election director cannot determine a winner. Clark County Commission orders a special election. Political pressure forces certification. Now 74 new ballots in a recount.— Stavros Anthony (@StavrosAnthony) December 12, 2020
