Where can I find the Candidate Handbook?

We publish a Candidate Handbook approximately 4 months before an upcoming election. We offer a printed and online version of the Candidate Handbook. We also offer past Candidate Handbooks for reference: https://www.nevadacountyca.gov/3302/Candidate-Handbook

Any questions prospective candidates have prior to the publication of the Candidate Handbook can be directed to our staff during normal business hours by emailing elections.mail@nevadacountyca.gov or calling 530-265-1298. We are open Monday through Friday, 8:00am - 5:00pm.
