Ballots in the mail for assembly race and more

With all of the focus on the March 3 Presidential Primary and candidates lining up for local supervisorial districts, it might be easy to forget that there is another election fast approaching.

Ballots were mailed Oct. 7 for the Nov. 5 election that includes two local special district races, as well as the runoff for the District 1 Assembly seat.

Voters can choose between Democrat Elizabeth Betancourt and Republican Megan Dahle. Betancourt is a farmer and watershed scientist, while Dahle is a farmer and businesswoman. She is seeking to succeed her husband, Brian Dahle, who was elected to the state senate.

The two special district races are for the Beckwourth Fire Protection District and the Chester Public Utility District.

Five candidates are seeking to serve on the board of Beckwourth Fire: Jennifer Langston; Daniel Smith, appointed incumbent; Gayanna Miller; Margaret Denisce Downs, incumbent; and George Bundy, incumbent. Voters can vote for three of the five candidates.

Voters will be asked to vote for two of three candidates for the Chester utility district. They are: Stephen Voboril, incumbent; Stephen Graffweg; and Royce Raker.

Registered voters who have not received their ballot should contact the Plumas County elections office at 283-6256.
