In the race of the North Las Vegas constable’s office, incumbent Robert Eliason will face Laughlin Deputy Constable Jimmy Vega this November.
Unofficial election results posted Tuesday night show Eliason winning the race’s Democratic primary and Vega it’s Republican primary.
Eliason, a former North Las Vegas city councilman, won a three-way primary race with more than 42 percent of the vote. Retired police detective Jon Martin came in second with 31 percent, and former Las Vegas Deputy Constable Isaac James, 62, ranked third with about 27 percent of the vote.
Eliason, 55, drew controversy during his first four-year term as constable because he never received a law enforcement certification as required by state law. Constables and their deputies rarely make arrests. Instead, their primary duties include carrying out evictions and serving civil court papers such as subpoenas, wage garnishments and property liens.
Vega, 51, won the two-way Republican primary against retired Henderson police officer Travis Roundy with about 53 percent of the vote.
