LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A new lawsuit has been filed in the race for Clark County Commission District C which elections officials say was too close to certify the result which has a margin of victory of just ten votes.
On Tuesday, former Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller filed a lawsuit claiming the Clark County Commission overstepped their legal authority by wiping away votes cast in the general election which will set up a special election.
As of the results released on Monday by Clark County election officials, Miller lead current Las Vegas Councilman and Mayor Pro Tem Stavros Anthony by 10 votes.
Miller says in part, “Rest assured I have won this election. We will defend the integrity of the fair process... Our hard-working elections officials administered."
Anthony says he was both surprised and pleased by the decision to grant a special election.
“This is really what people are interested in, election integrity and this is what it comes down to is the election came out, I was down by 10 votes and the election department did their due diligence," said Anthony.
13 Investigates reached out to the Miller campaign repeatedly for an interview but requests were not acknowledged.
As of late Tuesday evening, a court hearing had yet to be set.
