All registered Nevada County voters should receive ballots this week for the state Senate District 1 election.

Local elections officials said ballots would be mailed today for the race between state Assemblymen Brian Dahle and Kevin Kiley. Ballots should reach mailboxes in one to two days.

The election is June 4.

All of Nevada County is vote-by-mail. Local voters can complete and mail back their ballot, bring it to one of several designated drop-off spots or deliver it to a vote center. They also can vote in person at any vote center.

According to officials, 68,142 ballots will be been mailed. The number includes those in the military and overseas.

As of Wednesday there were 24,779 registered Democrats in Nevada County and 22,161 Republicans. The third largest group is no party preference/decline to state with 16,912.

Voters in 11 counties, including Nevada County, will determine who becomes the next state senator for the 1st District. The seat became vacant when former state Sen. Ted Gaines won a seat on the state Board of Equalization.

Both Republicans, Dahle and Kiley were the top two vote-getters in a March 26 primary election. Neither received 50 percent plus one vote, necessitating the June 4 runoff.
