LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Kevin McMahill dominated the primary race for Clark County sheriff and won the seat outright with 58.2% of the vote making it an easy victory over his challengers Tom Roberts (23.5%) and Stan Hyt (18.1%).

According to the Clark County Election Department, 218,508 or 17.1% of registered voters voted in the primary election. The largest turnout of voters were those who voted by mail which accounted for 90,739 voters or 7.1% followed by voters (68,314 or 5.3%) who took part in early voting.

CCSD BOARD OF TRUSTEES: In other races that have generated high interest, all three Clark County school board races appear headed for runoffs in November. The non-partisan races involve seats currently held by three trustees who voted to terminate the contract of Clark County School District Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara in October. Trustees then backtracked and brought Jara back.

  • District D: Substitute teacher Steven Conger finished 26.6% which was a slim lead over incumbent Irene Cepeda — CCSD Board of Trustees president — who received 25.6% of the vote. Brenda Zamora had 24.2%.
  • District F: Irene Bustamante Adams, a former Nevada State Assemblywoman, led with 21.1% of the vote, and incumbent Danielle Ford had 18.1% of the vote. Jay “Coach” Calhoun had 15.4%.
  • District G: Incumbent Linda P. Cavazos led with 34.9%, followed by Greg Wieman with 17.3% and Adam Larosa with 12.2%.

SECRETARY OF STATE: The Republican primary for secretary of state went to Jim Marchant, a former state lawmaker who has been repeating the false claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen. Marchant has been active in efforts to cast doubt on the last election and has appeared at various events with allies of former President Donald Trump, according to The Associated Press.

Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske was not eligible for another term due to term limits.

Marchant will face Cisco Aguilar, a lawyer and former chair of the Nevada Athletic Commission who was unopposed in the Democratic primary.

TREASURER: In the race for treasurer, Michele Fiore won with 62% of the vote. Fiore pulled out of the crowded governor’s race and refiled to run for treasurer.

U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES: Races for the U.S. House of Representatives brought some interesting results, as well.

  • District 1: Mark Robertson won with 30.3% and is headed for a November clash with Democratic incumbent U.S. Rep. Dina Titus, who easily won her primary.
  • District 3: Republican April Becker (65%) was declared the winner of her primary by The Associated Press, and will face Democratic U.S. Rep. Susie Lee in November.
  • District 4: In the Republican primary, Sam Peters (46.3%) led the pack. Annie Black received 41.8%. Peters will face Democratic U.S. Rep. Steven Horsford, who did not have a primary challenger.
