Get those ballots in; only 25 percent received thus far

With the June 7 Primary just a few days away, Plumas County reports that 25 percent of ballots have been received — that’s less than is typical at this point in the election cycle. By comparison, during last September’s gubernatorial recall election, 34 percent of the ballots had been received two weeks before the election, and in the 2018 Gubernatorial Primary at this point there was an approximate 52 percent turnout.


Clerk Recorder Marcy DeMartile is advising registered voters who have not received a ballot, to contact her office as soon as possible, and not to wait until Election Day: [email protected]or 530-283-6256.

Also, voters don’t have to wait until Election Day to return their ballot. It can be returned in the secured ballot drop box in front of the courthouse, brought into the election’s office on the first floor of the courthouse, or put into the mail – no postage is necessary. A signature and physical/residence address must be included on the blue ballot return envelope in order for it to be processed.

The office is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today, June 3, and Monday, June 6, and will be open to voters from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day.
