Nevada County polls open till 8 p.m.

All Nevada County vote centers are open today and will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Local officials had received 23,781 completed ballots as of 7 p.m. Thursday for the election that will decide the county’s next sheriff, two spots on the Nevada Irrigation District’s Board of Directors and a countywide cannabis business tax, in addition to several other local and statewide races.

Officials said 69,197 Nevada County residents were registered to vote as of Friday.

Almost 20 million Californians are registered to vote in Tuesday’s midterm election, Secretary of State Alex Padilla has said.

All Nevada County voters should have received a ballot in the mail, though they can still cast ballots at a handful of vote centers scattered across the county or drop off their completed ballots.

Traditional precinct polling locations no longer exist. There were replaced by vote centers, where Nevada County residents can cast ballots regardless of where they live.
