LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada Supreme Court has ruled that signs declaring a Las Vegas-area assembly candidate ineligible for the seat will stay up at polling places.

The court denied a motion from Democratic candidate Meghan Smith to put a hold on a judge’s order that called for the large-print notices.

Judge Nancy Allf ruled last week that Smith did not meet eligibility requirements for a seat in Assembly District 34, which is in the Summerlin area and is currently held by Democratic Assemblyman William Horne.

But the deadline for making changes to the ballot has passed, so Smith’s name still appears there.

If Smith garnered more votes than her Republican opponent Victoria Seaman, the Democrat-controlled assembly could appoint a candidate for the seat. That could theoretically be Smith.
