Voting ballots hit mail Friday

Mail ballots for the Nov. 2 general election started going out Friday in Nevada County.

For voters residing in California Senate District 1, which is in the eastern part of the county, the general election ballot will include a special election to succeed the late Sen. Dave Cox, Elections Office officials said.

The consolidated special election has resulted in ballots being mailed out to voters later than usual because of the later-than-usual filing deadline for candidates in that special election.

The candidate filing period for Senate District 1 closed Sept. 20, and the certified list of candidates for that race was released at 5 p.m. Sept. 27.

The candidate filing deadline for the general election was Aug. 6.

All precincts in Nevada County will have a two-card mail ballot. The return postage for vote-by-mail voters is 61 cents.
