Voter registration deadline is March 16

“There are only 11 days left in which to register to vote for April 14 special Municipal Election in the Town of Truckee and a special Bond Election to be held in the Tahoe-Truckee Unified School District,” County Clerk Bruce Bolinger reminds voters.

Monday, March 16, is the voter registation deadline.

“Anyone who is not registered to vote and is a U.S. citizen, 18 years of age or older on or before the April 14 election, an not in prison or on parole for a felony conviction should register by March 16,” he said.

“Also, anyone who is already registered, but who has moved, should re-register.”

To register to vote, people need to complete a registration form and mail it to the Elections Department of the County Clerk’s office.

The forms, which are preaddressed and postage paid, are available at 18 locations in the Truckee area, including the post offices, Department of Motor Vehicles, county offices (library, Municipal Court, Mental Health, and Social Services), Truckee-Donner Public Utility District, Truckee-Donner Recreation and Park District, Tahoe-Truckee High School, Longs and Lucky, or by calling the elections office in Nevada City at 265-1298.

Additional locations include the American Mail Center (in the Safeway shopping center), Northwoods Clubhouse, Truckee-Donner Congregate Housing, Tahoe Forest Hospital and the visitor’s center at the downtown train station.

As long as a voter registration card is completed, dated, and mailed by no later than March 16, it can be accepted by the County Clerk if it arrives in his office no later than Friday, March 20.

For information, call 265-1297 or 1-888-395-1298.
