LAS VEGAS (AP) —
Voter turnout was light for municipal elections that ousted City Council incumbents in three southern Nevada cities and handed victory to a former state assemblywoman over the wife of a term-limited Las Vegas councilman.
In Las Vegas, Councilman Bob Beers lost his seat on Tuesday to a retired Air Force colonel, Steve Seroka, and former Assembly member Michele Fiore turned away Kelli Ross' bid to follow her husband, Steve Ross.
In North Las Vegas, Councilwoman Anita Wood lost to challenger Scott Black.
In Henderson, Councilman John Marz held off a challenge from Carrie Cox.
In Boulder City, Warren Harhay and Kiernan McManus won over John Milburn and incumbent Councilman Cam Walker.
A Las Vegas Municipal Court judge, Heidi Almase, lost her seat to challenger Cara Campbell.
Election officials say only about 8.7 percent of registered voters cast ballots.
