LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Stavros Anthony has filed for a recount of the Clark County Commission District C race just two days after Ross Miller was certified the winner.
According to Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin, Anthony’s representative filed the request Thursday.
Anthony, a Republican, lost the race to Miller, a Democrat, by 10 votes.
Anthony’s campaign issued a statement Friday criticizing the commission’s interpretation of a judge’s decision. Judge Elizabeth Gonzalez did not order the commission to forego a special election, according to the campaign.
“If the county commissions can just arbitrarily make the decision to not count 139 ballots, without any good reason whatsoever, it makes you wonder what else they’d be willing to do to our vote,” Anthony said. “The bottom line is there are 139 voters whose ballots aren’t being counted, and the county commission has thrown up their hands and said ‘oh well.’ ”
Clark County Election Department staff are to begin working on the recount on Monday, Dec. 7, at 5 a.m. Kulin says they expect staff will work from 5 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. through Friday, Dec. 11.
