Primay Vote: It's Now Official

By  | 

Final, official totals reported by Nevada counties with two-thirds of the votes in the state's tightest August 15th race shows Dean Heller picking up two more votes in his razor-thin victory over Sharron Angle in a Republican congressional primary.
The official vote canvass in Clark County shows no change in the
votes cast in the 2nd Congressional District race - or, for that
matter, in other statewide or congressional primary contests.
In Washoe County, the second largest of the state's 17 counties
and the one where most votes were cast in the close congressional
race, Secretary of State Heller's slim victory margin over
Assemblywoman Angle wasn't affected because both picked up six
votes apiece in the final canvass.
Official results from Elko, Esmeralda and Lander counties showed
the same numbers in the House race that were posted last week. In
Carson City, Heller picked up two more votes while Angle and
Gibbons saw no changes.
The bottom line: Heller's 428-vote districtwide win over Angle
increased to 430 based on official returns in the six counties.
