The 2022 primary election is today.

All vote centers are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. today. People can cast a ballot in person, drop off their ballot at a vote center or drop box, or mail it to the elections office, as long as it’s postmarked today.

There are a handful of local races on the ballot today, including clerk-recorder/registrar of voters, Board of Supervisors Districts 3 and 4, assessor, auditor-controller and two seats on the Nevada City Council.



Voters will also cast ballots in the statewide primary for governor, lieutenant governor, and a U.S. Senate seat, among others.

As of Monday, there were 75,504 registered voters in Nevada County. The elections office had received 15,753 completed ballots by around noon that day — a 20.9% turnout at that time. Officials said a large amount of completed ballots were expected to arrive today.
