Preparing For Election Day
Based on the vote by mail ballots already received, the Tuolumne County Elections Office is projecting a large voter turnout for Tuesday’s election.
Tuolumne County Clerk and Auditor-Controller Debi Bautista was Friday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
The polls will open on Tuesday at 7am and will close at 8pm. If you have questions today about where your polling location is located, you are asked to contact the Elections Office at 533-5570.
The Tuolumne County Elections Office at 2 South Green Street will be open in downtown Sonora tomorrow (Saturday) and Monday from 9 AM to 1 PM and Tuesday from 7 AM to 8 PM. This location is for those who would still like to register to vote and/or for those who live in Tuolumne County who would like to vote.
On Tuesday, Bautista is advising those in Mill Villa (Jamestown), that their polling place has now moved to the Mother Lode Fairgrounds. Also, residents of Pine Mountain Lake are being advised that their polling place has moved to the Groveland Library.
Bautista reports that almost eighty percent of registered voters in the county are choosing to vote via the mail rather than at the polls. The ballots must be postmarked by November 6th and received by the office three days later.
California voters will not only choose a new Governor this Tuesday but will also decide the fate of numerous ballot contentious propositions.
For more information, contact the Election’s Office by calling (209) 533-5570.
KVML Radio will broadcast national election results beginning at 6 PM on Tuesday, with local election result coverage from 8 PM through 11 PM.
myMotherLode.com will also provide local election results for both Tuolumne and Calaveras counties.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard each weekday morning at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45 AM on AM 1450 and FM 102.7 KVML.
