On December 11, a Nevada District Court Judge in Carson City ruled that any registered voter who lives in a particular jurisdiction may sign a recall petition. The ruling overrides the Secretary of State’s position, which is that only a registered voter in that area who actually voted in the previous election may sign such a petition. The case is Waymire v Miller, 08-oc-00244.
As a result, it is likely that a recall election will now be held in Boulder City, to determine if two particular city council members should be recalled. However, there may be an appeal.
