“In anticipation of Congressman Dean Heller’s resignation from the U.S. House of Representatives to serve in the United States Senate, I am preparing to call for a special election,” Sandoval said. “With an election in early September, Nevada will have a full voice as the House begins its work this fall.”
According to Nevada law, “the election must be conducted: (a) As soon as practicable after the issuance of the proclamation; (b) On a Tuesday; and (c) Not more than 180 days after the issuance of the proclamation.”
The Secretary of State has the authority to adopt regulations necessary for conducting a special election.
