Fifteen file for seat in Congress

The number of candidates who filed to run for a two-year term as representative of the 3rd Congressional District capped at 15 on Friday, according to the Clark County Election Department site.

Seven candidates from Henderson, seven from Las Vegas and one from Boulder City are seeking to fill the seat, which is being vacated by Republican incumbent Joe Heck, who is running for the Senate seat of retiring U.S. Democratic Sen. Harry Reid.

Republicans seeking the seat are Kerry Bowers, Michele Fiore, Sami Khal, Andrew Matthews, Michael Roberson, Danny Tarkanian and Annette Teijeiro.

Democrats who filed for the seat are Barry Michaels, Jacky Rosen, Jesse Sbaih, Steven Schiffman, Alex Singer and Neil Waite.

Warren Markowitz filed as an Independent American candidate and David Scott Goossen filed with no party affiliation. As an independent candidate, Goossen, a resident of Boulder City, is required to submit a petition with 100 registered voter signatures by June 3 to maintain his candidacy, said Clark County spokesman Dan Kulin.

A primary to narrow the field will be held June 14. The last day to register to vote in the primary by mail is May 14 and the deadline to register online or in-person at Election Department offices is May 24.

Early voting in the primary election will last two weeks beginning May 28, with the Boulder City polls open at City Hall from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. May 31 and June 1.

The last day the Election Department will accept written mail and absentee ballot requests is June 7.

Heck’s replacement will be voted into office in the Nov. 8 general election. The last day to register or update existing registration is Oct. 8 by mail and Oct. 18 in-person or online. Early voting is Oct. 22 through Nov. 4.
