CARSON CITY, Nev. (AP) - The Nevada Board of Examiners has
approved reimbursing counties for the cost of next month's special
election as requested by Secretary of State Ross Miller.

The $539,000 from a legislative contingency account must still be approved by the Legislature's Interim Finance Committee on Aug. 31.

Voters in Nevada's 2nd Congressional District go to the polls Sept. 13 to fill the vacancy left when Gov. Brian Sandoval appointed Republican Dean Heller to the U.S. Senate. The district covers all 16 of Nevada's mostly rural counties, and a slice of Clark County in southern Nevada.

Miller initially estimated the cost of the special election at $1.3 million, but says better information from counties has reduced the amount.

Counties will have to verify their expenses when they seek reimbursement.
