The clock is ticking for voters in South Lake Tahoe to get their ballots in for the Nov. 7 special election.
Voters are being asked to decide Measure C, a ballot question that would increase the city’s sales tax rate ½ percent for the next 15 years in order to fund road repairs. A “yes” vote is in favor of the tax and a “no” vote is against the tax.
Registered voters who have not returned their mail-in ballot by now should consider delivering the ballot in person, suggested Linda Webster, assistant registrar of voters for El Dorado County.
While ballots postmarked up until Election Day will be counted as long as they’re received within three days of the election, voters are better off safe than sorry.
Ballots can be returned to the county recorder clerk office in South Lake Tahoe in Suite 108 at 3368 Lake Tahoe Blvd. The office will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Election Day. Polling stations will be set up at South Shore Christian Assembly, located at 886 Glorene Ave., and at Lake Tahoe Christian Fellowship, located at 3580 Blackwood Road.
However, if you have not already registered to vote, you will need to head to the recorder clerk’s office, Webster said.
Measure C requires 66.7 percent in favor in order for it to pass.
