No. Municipal Elections in the valley are held during odd years, every two years. Federal, State and County Elections are held in even years. People commonly think all elections in the valley are held together but that is not the case. If you are unsure, call the City Clerk’s Office at 702-229-6311 for clarification. For more information on the Federal, State and County elections, contact the Clark County Election Department at 702-455-VOTE, or online at http://www.clarkcountynv.gov/depts/election.
What offices are decided in the Municipal Elections?
The citizens elect the mayor, six council members who comprise the City Council, and six Municipal Court Judges.
