LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- Voter turnout is expected to be pretty light on Tuesday for the municipal primary elections.

Despite that, there will be a few key races decided.

Henderson Mayor Andy Hafen’s main challenger is businessman Eddie Hamilton. In North Las Vegas, incumbent Shari Buck faces her top challenge from John Lee.

Voters also will be deciding a few other key races.

In las Vegas, the seat in City Council Ward 6 will be up as Steve Ross looks to retain his seat. Incumbent Ross will face off against Paul Rodriguez and Suzette LaGrange.

Las Vegas residents may only vote for candidates in their ward and must vote at their assigned precinct, which can be found on the back of their sample ballots or online.

Residents in North Las Vegas will vote on two City Council races. Four candidates will vie for Robert Eliason's seat as he is stepping down from Ward 1.

And in Ward 3, incumbent Anita Wood hopes to retain her seat against two challengers.

In Henderson, John Marz hopes to retain his Ward 3 seat on the City Council.

Tuesday’s elections may not decide the races themselves.

A race will be decided if one candidate secures 50 percent of the vote plus one. Otherwise, another election will be held in June between the two candidates with the most votes in each race.
