The unofficial results are in
The preliminary tally is in and voters in two Plumas County supervisorial districts have re-elected their supervisor for another term — at least for tonight — but there are more ballots to count.
The unofficial results were released soon after the polls closed Tuesday evening.
Of the 1,052 votes cast in District 3, incumbent Supervisor Sherrie Thrall received 640 for 60.84 percent. A candidate needs 50 percent plus 1 vote to avoid a runoff. Joseph Maumoynier finished second with 270 votes for 25.67 percent. Michael Nashlund, the third candidate, garnered 140 votes for 13.31 percent. District 3 represents the Lake Almanor Basin.
It was a little narrower in District 5 where incumbent Supervisor Jeff Engel finished the night with 711 of the 1,266 votes cast for 56.16 percent. Tim Driscoll finished second with 431 votes and 34.04 percent. The third candidate, Mimi Garner, received 117 votes for 9.24 percent. District 5 includes the Mohawk Valley and East Quincy.
Because this was an all-mail election, votes will continue to be tabulated through the week, but must be postmarked by June 5 to be counted.
Following Tuesday night’s vote count, Kathy Williams, the county’s chief elections official, said there were at least 150 ballots that had not been counted and more are expected this week. She said that counting will resume next Monday and that final results won’t be available until 10 days following the election, allowing time for voters who submitted ballots without signatures to supply them.
Of the 12,166 registered voters in Plumas County, 5,463 were counted Tuesday for a 44.9 percent turnout. Williams said although that number seems low, it is expected for a mid-term election and she predicted that it would rank among the highest in the state.
In the race for Congressional District 1, Republican incumbent Doug LaMalfa dominated Plumas polling with 52.7 percent, and Quincy resident Marty Walters coming in second with 22.98 percent.

Jeff Engel and doug lamalfa were illigitimately elected, winning the popular vote only because illegals voting in the election, sad!
Congratulations to both Mr. Engel and LaMalfa! Not sure what “Tax payer/voter” above is talking about. It is his party that fosters illegal voting. You both have served us well and looking forward to your continued efforts.
One who knows, thanks for confirming that Trump/Gop are crazy.
Why do you support crazy criminals for public office?
