Single races in three cities on the table in today’s municipal elections

Sun coverage

One race each in Henderson, North Las Vegas and Mesquite will be decided by voters during today’s general election.

Polls in the three cities will be open from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m.

All of the high-profile municipal election races, including mayoral contests in Henderson and North Las Vegas, were settled during the April primary. Under Nevada municipal election laws, a primary candidate who garners at least half the vote is automatically elected. That left just three races valleywide to be decided upon in today’s balloting.

Election officials are scaling back operations in expectations of low turnout, but interested voters will still have the chance to cast their ballots at one of several polls in their respective municipalities.

Once polls close at 7 p.m., results will start being released on Clark County’s website.

In Henderson, residents will decide between Mark Stevens and Sandy DiGiacomo in the race for municipal court judge. Residents can cast a ballot at any one of the city’s 10 voting centers.

In North Las Vegas, Isaac Barron and Jared Hardy will square off for the Ward 1 city council seat after Barron received 45 percent of the vote in the primary. Only residents of Ward 1 will be eligible to vote Tuesday at their assigned polling place.

Tuesday’s final race has four competitors running for two open seats on the Mesquite City Council. The city will set up two polls today where all residents can cast a vote.

During the early voting period that ended Friday, 7,631 people had cast ballots, including 5,100 in Henderson, 1,472 in Mesquite and 1,059 in North Las Vegas.
