Lassen County’s election chief Julie Bustamante announced Friday that the deadline to file a Declaration of Candidacy for the county’s District One supervisorial race has been extended until December 13th, after the incumbent, Supervisor Chris Gallagher, failed to file by the December 8th deadline.

“Any person, other than the incumbent, wishing to file can do so at the County Clerk’s Election office in the Annex behind the Historic Courthouse at 220 S. Lassen Street,” explains Bustamante.
More information is available by calling 1.530.251.8217.
