Over 15 Thousand Ballots Remain to Tally

Nevada County elections officials are saying there could be 10 to 15 thousand ballots  in Nevada County that are yet to be counted.  Assistant Clerk Recorder, Gail Smith says that’s due in part to a high number of vote by mail ballots that were dropped off at polling places and at the elections office on election day. She says that high number of ballots yet to be counted is not unusual.
