With 11 days before the start of early in-person voting, the hottest local race is for Douglas County School Board of Trustees.
The six candidates participated in the second debate in a week Tuesday at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center in Gardnerville.
The Town Hall Debate is sponsored by the Business Council of Douglas County, the Carson Valley Chamber of Commerce and The Record-Courier.
The debate will be moderated by District Judge Tom Gregory.
School Board trustees Robbe Lehmann and Heather Jackson are facing challengers Susan Jansen and Katherine Dickerson, while David Burns and Roberta Butterfield are vying for the newly redistricted seat vacated by term-limited trustee Ross Chichester.
All six positions are nonpartisan and countywide, though trustees must live in the district they represent.
Douglas County voters should expect to see ballots in their mailboxes this week, after they were mailed out on Friday by the Douglas County Clerk-Treasurer’s Office.
Residents may either fill out a ballot they receive in the mail or vote in person, but it is a felony to do both. In-person voting starts Oct. 22 at both the Douglas County Courthouse in Minden and the Douglas County Community & Senior Center in Gardnerville.
Last week, the candidates participated in a debate hosted by the Good Governance Group at the Douglas County Community & Senior Center.
