Monday is the last day to register to vote for June 7 election

Monday is the deadline for those who want to register to vote in the June 7 election or change their political party preference.

People can register at the Nevada County elections office, on the second floor of the Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Ave., Nevada City.

They also can get a voter registration application at the library, 980 Helling Way, Nevada City; the Department of Motor Vehicles, 435 Sutton Way, Grass Valley; and the post office, 185 E. Main St., Grass Valley.

Registration applications must be completed and postmarked or hand- delivered to the elections office by Monday.

The elections office can be reached at 530-265-1298.

Alternatively, people can visit online and complete the registration process.

Monday also is the last day people can change their registered political party. Party preference has an added significance this election because not all primaries are open.

Only registered Republicans can vote in that party’s presidential primary.

The American Independent, Democratic and Libertarian parties have opened their primaries. That means no party preference voters can cast ballots for those parties’ presidential candidates.

Voters will decide a handful of local races on June 7. The District 1 and 2 county supervisor seats are up for election.

Voters countywide will decide on Measure W, the contentious issue that if passed would implement an outdoor medical marijuana grow ban and limit indoor grows to 12 plants.

Nevada City residents will cast ballots on two local issues dealing with online rentals and a tweak to the structure of the city’s business license fees, respectively.

The District 5 supervisor, a Superior Court judge, the Nevada City clerk and three Nevada City Council candidates have no opposition.
