A candidate says an invalid ballot has been found during a recount of voting results that showed a one-vote margin separating him from the apparent winner of a North Las Vegas City Council seat.
Richard Cherchio issued a statement Sunday saying that Clark County elections officials notified him that one illegal ballot was found in the Ward 4 recount.
Cherchio says he’s waiting word from city and elections department administrators about what happens next.
Wade Wagner emerged from the election last Tuesday with 1,831 votes. Cherchio drew 1,830 votes in unofficial results.
Wagner later said he was sure one neighbor’s vote gave him the win.
