Absentee ballot holders who have not mailed them to the elections offices in Nevada or Placer counties yet should now cast them at any county polling place on election day by 8 p.m., according to Clerk-Recorder Kathleen Smith and Placer County election officials.

Absentee ballots can also be turned in at the county elections office by 8 p.m. Tuesday. Any absentee ballots from Nevada or Placer County that come in by mail after election day will not count, even if they are postmarked prior to June 6.

“Don’t mail a ballot out by this point forward,” Smith said Friday afternoon, because there is a good chance it will not meet Tuesday’s deadline.

If all fails and an absentee voter has not received a ballot by election day, they can vote provisionally at the polling place listed on the back of their voters information pamphlet, which some call the sample ballot, Smith said.

If they do not have the pamphlet, they can call the elections office at 265-1298 to get their correct polling place.
