Vote totals updated for Nevada County races
The most up-to-date vote tally, released Friday afternoon, shows little change in the election outcome for local races, though the final numbers will determine whether turnout this year could break records.
As of Friday, 40,652 ballots were counted from a possible 74,467 registered voters. Nevada County Assistant Clerk-Recorder/Registrar of Voters Natalie Adona said the elections office has about 19,000 ballots left to count and updates can be expected every Tuesday and Friday.
All results are unofficial and incomplete. The county must certify results to the state no later than 31 days following the election.
If voter turnout estimates hold up, just under 60,000 of 74,467 registered county voters will have cast their ballot, a nearly 80% turnout.
In the 2018 statewide general election, 79% of 68.869 registered residents voted. In the 2016 presidential election, voter turnout was at 68%, or 45,167 votes cast.
In the Grass Valley City Council race, 8,316 of 9,087 possible ballots have been counted. In the race to fill the vacated Nevada City Council seat, 1,541 of 2,467 possible ballots have been counted.
