Pursuant to Sparks City Charter, Article V, Section 5.030, the conduct of all elections must be under the control of the City Council. For the conduct of elections, for the prevention of fraud in elections, and for the recount of ballots in cases of doubt or fraud, the City Council shall adopt by ordinance all regulations which it considers desirable and consistent with the law and this Charter.
Pursuant to NRS 293C.110, except as otherwise provided in subsection 2, conduct of any city election shall be under the control of the governing body of the city, and it shall, by ordinance, provide for the holding of the election, appoint the necessary election officers and election boards and do all other things required to carry the election into effect.
Adoption of an ordinance providing for the conducting and holding of the municpal elections is required by Nevada Revised Statutes and the Sparks City Charter.
In addition, the ordinance identifies election dates, municipal offices seeking candidates, the agreement with Washoe County to conduct the election and sets the filing fees.
It is cost effective for the City of Sparks to contract with Washoe County to allow the Registrar of Voters to conduct the city's elections for 2020. The current filing fee for municipal offices is set at $30
