More than 38 percent of the voters in our county have already cast their ballots, according to the Elections Office.
The county has received 23,635 ballots (including 8,322 from Democrats, 10,772 from Republicans and 3,501 from non-partisans) out of a total of 61,481 registered voters.
All told 43,566 vote-by-mail ballots were issued. Many voters wait until Election Day to bring them to the polls or Elections Office.

In an editorial — on Election Day, no less — The Union’s editor/publisher is bashing one of the candidates for the Grass Valley City Council.
“Take Ed Yarborough, for example. Ed is running for city council again because he thinks most members of the current council are ‘liberal witches’ who perform ‘black magic’ (he promises to bring ‘white magic’ to the council) and believes Grass Valley’s biggest problem is illegal immigration, which is why he used to stand out in front of the Catholic church and protest bilingual services. Grass Valley has a lot of problems, but illegal immigration isn’t one of them. So, please … don’t vote for Ed.”
A plan for Minnesota pastors to endorse candidates from the pulpit is here. One of them taunted the “liberal media” to file an IRS complaint against the church. “Do it out of hatred for me,” he urged.
