Voters can register now and save county funding

Nevada County voters who want to be the first to get their Nov. 5 general election information pamphlets and help save local tax dollars should register or re-register by Friday.

Voters who register by then will receive their state voter information pamphlets weeks earlier than voters who register later, according to a press release issued by Nevada County Clerk-Recorder Lorraine Jewett-Burdick.

In addition, those registrants will help save local tax dollars, because for now, the Secretary of State’s office pays to mail pamphlets, according to the release.

“Voters who register late force the Nevada County Elections Office to pay to mail the state pamphlet just before the election,” the press release states.

Residents must re-register every time they move or change their party affiliation or their name.

Voter registration cards are available at 75 locations across the county, including county government offices, post offices, chambers of commerce and libraries.

The final deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 5 general election is Oct. 7.
