County GOP election needs redo after possible double votes


Clark County’s elections official says a Republican primary election for county administrator that was decided by four votes last week should be redone because more than 40 voters may have inadvertently voted twice.

Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria says he can’t certify results showing Aaron Manfredi (man-FREDDY) defeated Thomas Fougere (FOO-zhair) because poll workers allowed voters to cast ballots twice at multiple polling places after the voters mistakenly believed their first attempted to vote had failed.

He says poll workers did not follow proper procedure.

More than 59,000 votes were cast.

Gloria is asking county commissioners this week to set a July 17 special election.

Fougere told the Las Vegas Review-Journal he was excited for another chance but questioned how many voters would participate again.

Manfredi’s campaign did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.
