Ballots Hit Mailboxes- One Week Remains to Register

Ballots are already hitting mailboxes for the November 8th General Election. If you have not yet registered to vote, you have until October 24th.

On your ballot, you will see seven statewide Propositions, as well as races for candidates for U.S. Senate, Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Secretary of State, Controller, Treasurer, Attorney General, Insurance Commissioner, Member of State Board of Equalization, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, U.S. Representative in Congress, State Senator, State Assembly Member, Supreme Court Justices, as well as other local candidates and local measures.

Those in Lassen include Measure R and S for the legalization of commercial cannabis within industrialized zones in the City of Susanville and County, and voters in the county’s Supervisorial District 5 will choose between candidates Tom Traphagen and Jason Ingram.

Local measures in Plumas County include Bond Measure B for Seneca Healthcare District, and voters in Portola will vote for two of the three candidates running for City council.

County election offices remind you that you do not have to wait until election night to cast your vote. You can drop off your ballot at any location throughout the county early.

In Lassen, there are six drop box locations found at the County Government Center on Riverside, Westwood One Stop, Big Valley One Stop, Janesville Fire hall, the Historic Courthouse, and Doyle Senior Center. There will also be six polling locations as well come election night. Those are at the Westwood Visitors Center, Clerk Recorders office, Community Church, Janesville fire hall, Bieber Memorial building, and the Doyle Senior Center.

Plumas County remains a mail-in or drop-off-only county. Other than mailing in your ballot, you can drop them off at the Quincy Courthouse or the Elections office on Main street.

You should expect to have your ballot in your hands by the end of this week, though if you have not received yours by October 19th, you can contact the elections office near you.
