Time running out to vote on Measure A

  The last day to vote on Measure A is June 4 and as of May 21, only a quarter of the vote-by-mail ballots had been returned to the Plumas County Registrar of Voters.

  But Elections Coordinator Marcy DeMartile isn’t worried. “Come back on May 28 and these trays will be full,” DeMartile said, pointing to the containers earmarked for ballots.

  The elections office sent out 3,420 ballots to residents of the Quincy Fire Protection District. Residents are being asked to vote on Measure A, a $96 annual parcel tax that will appear on property tax bills for five years.

  Back in 2005, a similar tax measure was approved by 87 percent of the voters (66 percent is required).

  The first batch of ballots was sent out May 6, with a supplemental batch mailed May 20. Residents who think they live in the fire protection district but have not received a ballot should check with county elections officials by visiting their first floor office in the courthouse or by calling 283-6256.

  Registrar of Voters Kathy Williams said the breakdown of returned ballots thus far is interesting. So far, District 4, the heart of the fire protection district, has had the lowest percentage of ballots returned at 23.03 percent.

  District 2, which spreads from Indian Valley into Quincy, had the highest percentage with 29.41 percent. District 3, from Graeagle to Quincy, fell in the middle with 26.84 percent.

  Ballots must be returned to the elections office by 8 p.m. June 4. Postmarks are not accepted.
