Tobler Wins Second Term as Mayor

Tobler Wins Second Term as Mayor

BOULDER CITY -- Boulder City Mayor Roger Tobler won a second term, and Rod Woodbury and Peggy Leavitt won City Council seats in municipal election voting.

Tobler drew just under 55 percent of the percent of the unofficial Tuesday vote, turning back challenges from City Councilwoman Linda Strickland and handyman Zachary Inman. With more than 50 percent of the vote, Tobler avoided a runoff.

Woodbury and Leavitt are the top vote-getters in a five-way race for two seats. They'll be sworn in with Tobler to the five-member council June 28.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that Woodbury is the son of longtime former Clark County Commissioner Bruce Woodbury and the brother of Assemblywoman Melissa Woodbury.

Boulder City voters will still have a June 7 election to decide six ballot questions.

Cox On DEMAND Launches Election Info Area

Cox On DEMAND Launches Election Info Area

In an effort to help voters understand more about the candidates for mayoral, city council and city ward races in Clark County during the upcoming election, Cox Communications-Las Vegas and Cox Media launched Elections 2011 On DEMAND.

The current election cycle involves candidates from Boulder City, Henderson, Las Vegas and North Las Vegas.

Elections 2011 On DEMAND provides the means for voters to view a two-minute, educational “candidate vignette” on its On DEMAND platform via Cox Channel 1. The company’s News and Public Affairs department is providing all candidates with an opportunity to speak frankly about their candidacy or any issues. However, as opposed to the more common 30-second political television spot, the On DEMAND vignettes may not contain references to other candidates or political campaigns.

Election Officials Ask Boulder City Voters to Disregard Pink Notice

Election Officials Ask Boulder City Voters to Disregard Pink Notice

An erroneous pink notice auto-inserted by Clark County election officials into Boulder City absentee mail ballots should be disregarded. The notice stated that voters can select one candidate in each contest; however, Boulder City voters may select two candidates for city council.

Clark County Registar of Voters Larry Lomax mailed out a letter to each absentee mail ballot recipient indicating the notice was mistakenly enclosed. Anyone who already voted and mailed a ballot back to the Election Department and did not vote for two candidates for City Council Members At Large should contact the Election Department at 455-6552. A new ballot will be issued.

Voters also may choose to surrender their ballots and cast their votes on a machine at the early voting site at City Hall or at their polling place on Election Day.

Contact the City Clerk’s office at 293-9208 with questions.
