Attention, procrastinators! Register to vote by tonight

Nevada County residents who have procrastinated can still register to vote after work tonight at selected local fire agencies.

Today is the deadline to register to vote and receive voter registration materials for the Nov. 5 general election. State law mandates that voters re-register every time they move.

Citizens can complete a voter registration card at the Nevada County Elections Office, area post offices, libraries, government offices and more than 70 Nevada County businesses. The completed voter registration card must be postmarked today and received at the Elections Office by Friday to ensure the voter will receive a sample ballot booklet, absentee ballot application, and other voter information.
