Camp Fire remembrance | North State votes | Last-minute campaign spending

The latest North State and California news on our airwaves for Tuesday, Nov. 8. 

NSPR holds moment of silence to commemorate 2018 Camp Fire

Today marks four years since the Camp Fire devastated Concow, Paradise, Magalia, Butte Creek Canyon, and the surrounding area. On Nov. 8, 2018, the fire claimed 85 lives in Butte County and forever changed the lives of so many others.

At 11:08 this morning NSPR will join a countywide moment of silence by quieting our airwaves for 85 seconds — each second representing one of the lives taken in the fire.

If you haven’t registered to vote, you can still cast a provisional ballot

Anyone 18 or older who’s a California resident and a U.S. citizen is eligible to vote, including people formerly incarcerated and those experiencing homelessness. California allows same-day voter registration, meaning you can cast a provisional ballot by visiting any vote center in your county up to and on Election Day.
