North Las Vegas Council Race Could Come Down to High Draw

NORTH LAS VEGAS -- North Las Vegas could turn to a cut of the cards to determine who will advance to a June runoff in one of two contested City Council primary races.

In the city's Ward 2 race, Pamela Goynes-Brown drew 27 percent of the vote in Tuesday's municipal primary. Candidates Tanya Flanagan and Linda Meisenheimer tied for the other place on the ballot, with 328 votes each.

Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax says either candidate can request a recount. If the result is still a tie, the race could be determined by a draw for high card from a deck of playing cards.

Election results will be canvassed April 20 by the North Las Vegas City Council. Once the canvassing is done, Meisenheimer and Flanagan will have until April 26 to request a recount. If neither requests a recount, the game of chance could take place as early as April 27.

In the Ward 4 race, Councilman Richard Cherchio advanced to face dentist Wade Wagner in the June 7 general election.
