Last chance at voter materials today

Procrastinators who still want to register to vote in the March 5 primary election and receive voter materials have until 10 p.m. tonight to accomplish both goals.

Voter registration cards will be available at fire stations in Grass Valley, Alta Sierra, Penn Valley, Higgins Corner and North San Juan from 5 to 10 p.m. Completed voter registration cards will be collected Tuesday by county Elections Office employees, well before the Feb. 8 mailing deadline.

Today is the deadline for mailing voter registration cards for residents who want to receive a sample ballot, absentee ballot application and other voter information for the primary election.

Residents who register after today but before Feb. 19 can still vote in the primary election, but will not receive election materials.

Residents should re-register if they’ve moved, changed their name or changed political party since the last election.

Voter registration cards can be filled out tonight at Grass Valley Fire stations 1 and 2; Nevada City Consolidated Fire stations in Grass Valley and Alta Sierra; Penn Valley Fire Department; CDF/Higgins Fire District station, and North San Juan Fire stations 2 and 3.

If firefighters have to respond to an emergency call, voter registration service will be suspended until they return from the call.
