The Nevada Supreme Court on Thursday denied Las Vegas Councilman Stavros Anthony’s bid to force a new election after a razor-thin defeat to Ross Miller for a Clark County Commission seat in November.
Nevada’s Republican Secretary of State Barbara Cegavkse said Wednesday her office’s just-completed review of the election found no evidence for the state GOP’s claims.
If the Supreme Court decides that discrepancies did prevent the election for a Clark County commission seat, it would be overturning a lower court ruling.
Oral arguments are expected Wednesday in front of the Supreme Court, where lawyers representing Stavros Anthony and Ross Miller will appear before the justices.
Although the Nevada Republican Party claimed it had submitted more than 122,000 election fraud complaints, officials found fewer than 4,000.
