Don’t forget to vote
Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014 — Political pundits frequently proclaim the upcoming election as the most important in history. The truth is every election is important.
The Tuesday, Nov. 4 General Election gives Lassen County voters an opportunity to set the course of the ship of state at the national, state and local levels. Many residents will vote at polling places on Election Day, and many will vote through vote-by-mail ballots. For those who voted by mail, the county elections office must receive your ballot by 8 p.m. on Election Day, but remember postmarks do not count. If you feel your ballot cannot be processed through the mail in time, ballots may be dropped off at the elections office at the Lassen County Courthouse. Voters also may exchange their vote-by-mail ballot for a polling place ballot at their poling place. Voters who do not have their vote-by-mail ballot can still vote on a provisional ballot. The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
