Local ballot measures’ outcome depends on absentee ballots

“Nevada County’s Measure A, a sales tax to finance the library system, passes the required threshold of a two-thirds affirmative vote in the last update on election night,” YubaNet is reporting. “Measure B, asking voters’ approval to issue bonds for school infrastructure, appears to have that approval at this time. . . . Measure C, a sales tax measure to fund three public safety positions, enjoyed strong support from the get-go. . . However, the absentee and provisional ballots still remaining to be counted could change the outcome.”

Nevada County’s election night votes are here. YubaNet said it “estimates some 17,000+ ballots remain to be counted.”

  1. To be clear, Measure C in Nevada City is well on its way toward winning. Measures A and B are less certain, pending the count of absentee ballots.
