December 3 had been the expected date for Eureka County (Nevada) to hold a card drawing, to settle the tie vote for County Clerk. However, the incumbent County Clerk, Jackie Berg, filed a lawsuit earlier that day to stop the card drawing. The case is Berg v Wright, filed in Eureka County District Court.
Berg was elected as the nominee of the Independent American Party in 2006, and she ran for re-election this year as that party’s nominee. Thanks to Cody Quirk for this news. In this year’s election, the original count showed Berg defeating her only opponent, the Republican nominee, by 3 votes. After a recount, the vote was tied.
