More than one-third of Nevada County voters have cast ballots

Almost 40% of Nevada County voters have cast ballots in today’s election, officials said.

The elections office had received 25,646 ballots by Monday afternoon, out of some 68,600 mailed — a turnout of 38.5%.

Nevada County is entirely a vote-by-mail county, and every registered voter should have received a ballot in the mail. Voters can complete their ballot and mail it in, drop it off at one of several designated spots or vote in person at a handful of vote centers.

All vote centers will open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today, election day.

Nevada County voters will make their picks for Board of Supervisors District 1, Nevada City Council and two local ballot measures. Voters across the state will cast ballots for state Assembly, Senate and U.S. representatives. People voting a Democratic ticket will select their choice for president.
