Two vote centers open Saturday in Nevada County; Five more will follow June 2

The Nevada County elections office on Thursday mailed its third wave of ballots, sending replacements or issuing the vote-by-mail ballots to those who never received them.

Officials have said 67,183 ballots were mailed earlier this month. Around May 15 another 959 were issued, and on Thursday an additional 675.

Some people inadvertently discarded their ballots, leading them to ask for replacements, said Teal Caddy, clerk-recorder assistant II.

People who registered to vote after the first wave of ballots were mailed wouldn’t have received one, she added.

Every registered county voter should receive a vote-by-mail ballot under a pilot program the Board of Supervisors opted to join. Precincts no longer exist. They’re replaced by vote centers. Any voter can cast a ballot at the vote center of their choice. They also can mail in their completed ballot or drop it off at designated locations or any vote center.

The centers

Two vote centers open Saturday in Nevada County, with five more to follow just days before the June 5 election.
