A delay in printing and mailing Nevada County ballots for the November 4 election. According to Nevada County Clerk-Recorder Gregory Diaz says the delay was the result of a pending court decision that could have changed the ballot wording on one item.
Diaz tells KNCO that if the court had ordered a change to the ballot the original ballots and envelopes would have been destroyed.
Diaz made the decision to hold off on printing the envelopes and stuffing of the ballots with a confirmation from the printer there would be a five or six day delay.
As a result, the vote-by-mail ballots and sample ballot booklets were received by the West Sacramento Post Office on October 14, 2014 for delivery. According to Diaz, Nevada County residents began receiving the voter materials today. If someone has not received their ballot by October 22nd they should contact the Elections Office at 530-265-1298.
The last day someone can request a vote by mail ballots is October 28th. If someone would like to look up their sample ballot booklet the Elections Office has a look up on the Election Office home page on MynevadaCounty.com for their convenience.
