A number of jurisdictions have regularly scheduled municipal elections on June 7. Would that be too soon?

This story makes it sound like the Secretary of State has the option to make it a free-for-all or an election between candidates nominated by the state party central committee.
I read the statutes, and I would say the latter is the correct interpretation.

This is a partisan office, governed by NRS 293.165.1. It would appear nominees by the State CC’s can turn down the nomination under 293.204, but I don’t see how the SoS can declare a free-for-all election, since this is a partisan office.

Dingy and his Dim-wits have already called for an “Open selection process”.

So far as I know the appointee must be a “Republican”, but if the Dim’s have their way our new congressman will not be a conservative.
