NORTH LAS VEGAS – The North Las Vegas City Council officially approved election results from the April 5 primary during a special meeting.
That means council hopefuls Tanya Flanagan and Linda Meisenheimer could be one step closer to leaving the fate of their campaigns to chance – by the luck of the draw. Flanagan and Meisenheimer tied for second place in the Ward 2 race, each garnering 328 votes. According to the city clerks office, both candidates have three business days to request a recount, for which she would have to pay $600.
Only one candidate can advance to the general election to face Pamela Goynes-Brown, an assistant principal who received 425 votes, or 27 percent.
The Clark County Registrar of Voters would conduct a recount and confirm the results, according to the Review-Journal. If neither candidate requests a recount or if recount results in another tie, the winner will be decided “by lot.”
In Nevada, that means the candidates draw for high card, which may happen as early as April 21.
