Election 2000: Sierra Sun and Community Television Channel 6 to televise results Tuesday
Truckee residents will be able to watch local elections unfold on Nov. 7 from the comfort of their own sofa, thanks to a partnership between the Sierra Sun and local broadcasting TTCTV Channel 6.
Beginning at 9 p.m., Sierra Sun General Manager Joe Burns will introduce the local elections, interview candidates and touch on developments with statewide and national elections.
Results from the Tahoe Forest Hospital District, Truckee Tahoe Airport District, Truckee Donner Public Utility District and Truckee Town Council elections will be announced during the broadcast, as well as results from other local-related elections as they become available.
Voter results from each of the 12 precincts will be tallied locally and announced on the air immediately following.
“The votes from each precinct used to be taken in fire-proof bags to the airport and flown to Nevada City for an official count,” Burns said.
The coverage will begin with a count of absentee ballots, and at 9:30 p.m. Burns will announce the results from the first six precincts. The results from the final six precincts will be announced at 9:50 p.m. The coverage is expected to end at 10 p.m.
On Tuesday, Nov. 7, polls will open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Check the sample ballot you received in the mail for your polling location.
