As you are all well aware, Plumas County is a “Red” county. We are one of eleven counties which comprise District 1, a “Red” district. Our Democratic candidates are fighting an uphill battle and need the support of each Democrat in our district. Rob Rowen and Jim Reed have an additional hurdle to overcome in that California passed legislation which limits choices for state offices on the November ballot to the top 2 scoring candidates in the primary. If Rob and/or Jim do not score 1st or 2nd in the primary, their names will not be on the November ballot!
There are presently three candidates running for California state senator.
Rob Rowen(D); Ted Gaines(R); and Steve Baird( R and SOJ supporter). We may see the Republican voters split between Ted Gaines and Steve Baird. If every Democrat votes for Rob and he can attract enough independents, he may be able to earn a slot on the November ballot.
Jim (James) Reed, will be running in a national election for U.S. House of Representatives. Currently he is running against Doug LaMalfa (R), who has already raised $422,699, and 5 other serious candidates: Gregory Cheadle (R), Joe Montes (R), Doug Wright (R), David Peterson (D), Jeffrey Gerlach (I). (Gary Oxley is running, but has raised no money.)
Brian Dahle (R), incumbent for state assembly, is running unopposed.
Plumas County is now entirely mail-in for ballots. It is critical that everyone return his or her ballot so that it is postmarked on or before the day of the election, June 7th. The staff of the County Registrar of Voters has assured the public that they will make every attempt to see that all returned ballots are counted. If they identify any errors that will invalidate the ballot, they will return it to the sender so that the ballot can be corrected and mailed back.
Please be sure to watch the mail for your ballot!
