As part of the American Association of University Women’s (AAUW) “The Power of One Vote” campaign, Sue Miller (shown above right) is among the Nevada County Branch members registering voters at BriarPatch Market.
Miller’s role took on even more meaning when Dalia Mitchell (shown at left) and her baby walked up to the table one day. Originally from Mexico City, Dalia is a new American citizen and very excited about being able to vote.
“She was so grateful for the handy registration at BriarPatch,” Miller said. “Her enthusiasm is infectious!”
The deadline to register for the Nov. 6 general election is Monday, Oct. 22.
To register to vote, just complete a voter registration form and mail it. It is pre-addressed and postage paid. The forms are available from 45 locations in Nevada County, including markets, city halls, post offices, chambers of commerce, libraries, state agencies (DMV, EDD), county offices, and the Elections Office at 950 Maidu Ave., Nevada City. They are also available by calling the Elections Office at (530) 265-1298, or toll-free from Lake of the Pines and Truckee within Nevada County at (888) 395-1298.
