LAS VEGAS (AP) - Democratic Las Vegas Assembly candidate Meghan Smith has been declared ineligible for November’s election, although her name will remain on the ballot.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Judge Nancy Alf ruled Thursday that Assembly District 34 candidate didn’t meet residency requirements.

Smith’s Republican opponent, Victoria Seaman, had filed a complaint on the matter, saying Smith purchased a home in the district after she filed to run for office there. State law requires a candidate live in a district for 30 days before filing.

It’s too late to pull Smith’s name from the ballot, and if Seaman garners fewer votes, the Assembly can pick a candidate of its choice for the seat.

The district is currently held by Democratic Assemblyman William Horne. It’s located in the Summerlin area and leans Democratic.
