Kathy Williams, Plumas County clerk/recorder, reported as of mid-afternoon Monday, voter turnout for the Measure B ballot had reached 61 percent.

Of the 4,481 ballots issued, 2,713 have been returned - more than in the Measure A vote. A total of 2,500 ballots were cast in that election.

Voters have until 8 p.m. Tuesday evening, Aug. 31, to return their ballots to the county elections office.

Seconds after 8 p.m., the contentious election campaign will end.

Williams said many people have been walking into her office and handing in their ballots over the counter today. She expects to see more, along with the last few batches in the mail late today and throughout the day tomorrow.

Results will be posted at plumasnews.com tomorrow just after 8 p.m.

Measure B would cap the Plumas District Hospital property assessment at $50 per $100,000 of assessed value.
