Sec. § 293C.190
Procedure for filling vacancy in nomination.


1.

Except as otherwise provided in NRS 293C.115, a vacancy occurring in a nomination for a city office after the close of filing and on or before 5 p.m. of the first Tuesday after the first Monday in March of the year in which the general city election is held must be filled by filing a nominating petition that is signed by at least 1 percent of the persons who are registered to vote and who voted for that office at the last preceding general city election. Except as otherwise provided in NRS 293C.115, the petition must be filed not earlier than the third Tuesday in February and not later than the third Tuesday after the third Monday in March of the year in which the general city election is held. A candidate nominated pursuant to the provisions of this subsection may be elected only at a general city election, and the candidate’s name must not appear on the ballot for a primary city election.

Except as otherwise provided in NRS 293C.115, a vacancy occurring in a nomination for a city office after 5 p.m. of the first Tuesday after the first Monday in March and on or before 5 p.m. of the second Tuesday after the second Monday in April of the year in which the general city election is held must be filled by the person who received the next highest vote for the nomination in the primary city election.

3.

Except to place a candidate nominated pursuant to subsection 1 on the ballot and except as otherwise provided in NRS 293C.115, no change may be made on the ballot for the general city election after 5 p.m. of the second Tuesday after the second Monday in April of the year in which the general city election is held. If a nominee dies after that time and date, the nominee’s name must remain on the ballot for the general city election and, if elected, a vacancy exists.
