LAS VEGAS (AP) - Nevada Secretary of State Ross Miller is refusing to allow rural precincts to hold a special election for a vacant U.S. House seat by mail only.

Miller announced Thursday that he had denied requests from
Esmeralda and Nye Counties to allow some precincts to hold a mail
only election for the Sept. 13 special election.

Both counties say they would save money by allowing voters to only cast mail ballots.

But Miller says he is worried about any unknown challenges that could develop if voters' options were limited.

Republican Mark Amodei and Democrat Kate Marshall are vying for
the House seat recently vacated by Republican Dean Heller. Heller
was appointed to the Senate to replace Republican Sen. John Ensign.
