Measure C voting available until Tuesday

Registered voters in the Tahoe Forest Hospital District who didn’t receive a ballot, incorrectly marked their ballots or missed mail-in deadlines for Measure C will still be able to have their votes counted.

County registrars will collect ballots and make ballots available Tuesday in Tahoe City and Truckee.

Placer County will place a drop-off box at the Fairway Community Center in Tahoe City from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, as well make extra ballots available, said Robin Bjerk with Placer County Election’s candidate services.

Nevada County has set up a ballot box at the clerk’s office in the Truckee Town Hall, where voters can drop off their completed ballots during working hours through Tuesday, said Susan German, assistant county clerk-recorder.

Provisional ballots will be available at the Truckee clerk’s office on Tuesday only. Town Clerk Judy Price said the office will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Local post offices will begin trapping ballots after Friday, holding the ballots on site to be picked up Tuesday, so even those mailed after Friday can be collected counted, German said.

But provisional ballots cast on the last day, and ballots collected from post office holdings, may not be counted until after election day, German said.
