Local League of Women Voters prepares for National Voter Registration Day

Voter registration information will appear at several locations across Nevada County through Oct. 24, the final day California residents can register to vote in the Nov. 8 election.

Members of the League of Women Voters of Western Nevada County will distribute the literature in advance of National Voter Registration Day, this coming Tuesday. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., League members will be at the Nevada City SPD, 735 Zion St.; Natural Selection Food & Wine, 589 E. Main St., Grass Valley; and the Sierra College Grass Valley campus, 250 Sierra College Drive, helping people register and answering questions.

“We have a presidential election coming up,” said Tracy Pepper, publicity chairwoman with the local League. “The more we can raise consciousness and awareness, the better.”

California voters have several high profile issues on the Nov. 8 ballot, including Proposition 64, which if approved would legalize recreational marijuana in the state.
