Voters in November will choose either Shannan Moon or Bill Smethers as the next Nevada County sheriff, as none of the three candidates received enough votes in the June 6 primary election to win outright.
Nevada County voters also will cast ballots for a U.S. Senate seat, two spots in the U.S. House of Representatives, a state Senate seat and an Assembly seat.
