Yuba City’s Nagar Kirtan | Election results timeline | RSV concerns

The latest North State and California news on our airwaves for Thursday, Nov. 10. 

Nagar Kirtan celebrated in Yuba City

Nagar Kirtan is a religious festival and grand procession held in Yuba City every year. Many believe it is the biggest festival of its kind in the country. For weeks leading up to the kirtan — or the parade — Yuba City’s Sikh Punjabi community visited community temples to donate food, labor and just about anything else needed ahead of the festival.

Mail-in ballots mean it will take longer to get election results

Across California, there’s a new normal for how long it takes to count all the results. The vast majority of voters have switched to using mail ballots, which take longer to arrive and process. State law requires counties to count all mail ballots that arrive up to seven days after the polls close as long as they’re postmarked by Election Day.
