North Las Vegas election stalled by court order

A North Las Vegas City Council meeting to discuss a special election in Ward 4 was postponed until next Tuesday following a court-issued temporary restraining order.

The restraining order was issued late Thursday afternoon on the heels of a lawsuit filed earlier this week by Wade Wagner to halt a council-ordered new election in the race for the Ward 4 council seat.

Wagner won the seat over incumbent Richard Cherchio by a single vote in the June 7 general election. However, five days later the Clark County Elections Department found one invalid vote had been cast.

The city council voted on June 15 to hold a new election in Precinct 4306, where the invalid vote had been cast.
