(North Las Vegas, NV) — A recount in a controversial North Las Vegas city council race will take place this afternoon. Former councilman Richard Cherchio requested the recount this week, saying he has an obligation to “eliminate any discrepancies.”
Last month, Cherchio lost his seat to rival Wade Wagner by one vote. It was later learned a voter cast a ballot in the wrong precinct, leading to a legal battle. County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax says the recount should wrap up by the end of the day.
