North Las Vegas will hold its general municipal election June 7, with a primary election April 5.
Up for reelection are city council seats in wards 2 and 4, and a municipal judge position currently held by Warren VanLandschoot, who has served since 1997.
The Ward 4 seat is currently held by Councilman Richard Cherchio, who was appointed to the position in 2009. The Ward 2 seat is occupied by Mayor Pro Tempore William Robinson, who has served on the council for 27 years and is unable to run again due to term limits.
In North Las Vegas, the council members and mayor are elected by the city at large, but each candidate must reside in the ward he or she will represent.
The top two vote-getters for the primary election run against each other in the general election in North Las Vegas. If any candidate receives a majority of the vote in the primary, that person automatically wins the seat and no general election is held.
In North Las Vegas, city council members serve four-year terms. Municipal judges serve six-year terms.
According to the city’s website, candidates can register with the City Clerk’s office by picking up a packet between Jan. 25 and Feb. 4.
