CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - A new interpretation of Nevada election
laws by Secretary of State Ross Miller will make it harder to recall officials and could complicate efforts to get several statewide initiatives on the ballot.
Miller's interpretation allows voters to sign a recall petition only if they participated in the election in which the targeted official was elected. It also requires that the address included with a signature on a ballot petition - recall or otherwise - match that voter's registration information.
Clark County Registrar of Voters Larry Lomax said no recalls in the county since 1994 were done the way Miller says they should have been. But even though he doesn't agree with Miller's readings of the law, Lomax says his office will abide by them.
