The Clark County, Nevada election commission is overturning the results of its county commissioner race after "ballot discrepancies" were found that cast doubt over the results of the election.
During a meeting to certify election results in the county, the commission directed Registrar of Voters Joe Gloria to return early next month with options for a special election between Democratic former Secretary of State Ross Miller and Republican Las Vegas City Councilman Stavros Anthony.
Clark County commissioners have certified all the results of the general election — except in the race for the commission seat representing District C, where ballot discrepancies outnumber the 10 vote-lead the victor, Ross Miller, secured.
Because the discrepancies were more than the margin of victory, it called into question the validity of the results and that uncertainty was unlikely to be resolved by a recount.
According to Nevada Independent journalist Megan Messerly, 2,243 ballots were rejected in the election. Those included over 1,900 individuals who were not registered to vote, and 115 who had already voted.
President Donald Trump tweeted about the results on Monday night, incorrectly calling the race "all democrat," though Ross Miller's opponent, Stavros Anthony, is a Republican.
The announcement from Clark County comes just hours after four states threw out lawsuits brought forward by voters attempting to initiate investigations into potentially fraudulent election results, or otherwise have Joe Biden's technical wins in those states dismissed.
