Riverside County proclaimed a local emergency today because of the Silver Fire, a step that could make the county eligible to receive disaster funds if state and federal officials recognize the emergency and make assistance available.
Monday (Aug. 12) is the deadline for voters to register and be eligible to cast a ballot in the Aug. 27 mail-ballot election to fill open seats in the Idyllwild Fire Protection District and Rancho California Water District. It is not a countywide election and there will be no established polling places because it is entirely a mail-ballot election.
Facts and other information about the potentially fatal Ebola virus are available on a new web page from Riverside County health officials.
