LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The twists-and-turns in the Clark County Commission District C race may not be done just quite yet.
Stavros Anthony took to Twitter earlier on Thursday to announce that he will ask for a recount and pay for it, as required by law.
I will continue to fight for integrity of election process and residents of District C who demand Special Election. Today I will ask for vote recount with outrageous price of $80,000. If you would like to help, on-line or checks to 438 east Sahara, 89104. https://t.co/9bHG6vOHCj— Stavros Anthony (@StavrosAnthony) December 3, 2020
Even though the margin in the District C race between Anthony and Ross Miller was a razor-thin 10 votes, Nevada law does not have rules for any automatic recount and it requires whoever requests the recount to pay for it.
If the recount leads to a change in who won the race, Anthony would be in line to receive a refund.
On Tuesday, Clark County Commissioners voted unanimously to certify the Miller victory. This was a U-turn from last month when Clark County Registrar Joe Gloria told the group that there were more than 100 voting discrepancies, leading commissioners to originally consider a special election.
Miller recently filed a complaint against the county claiming commissioners overstepped their legal authority by throwing out votes from the general election.
