Candidates planning to run for office in the California primary election had to get their paperwork in to Elections offices Friday in order to qualify for the June Primary. Nevada County Elections Chief, Greg Diaz says redistricting has changed the map and many of the districts have changed in Nevada County. For instance, the majority of the county used to be in State Senate District 3 and now Nevada County is entirely in Sate Senate District 1. Nevada County is now in State Assembly District 1.
Congressional lines have also changed for Nevada County which used to be represented by Congressional District 4, now most of the county is in Congressional District 1 with about 15,000 voters in Truckee still in Congressional District 4.
Diaz says candidates for office in districts covering multiple counties will register in the county in which they live. Also up for election this year are County Supervisor District 1 (Nate Beason incumbent), District 2 (Ed Scofield incumbent) and Supervisor District 5 in Truckee where incumbent Ted Owens has elected not to run for re-election.
In Nevada City three seats are up for election currently held by incumbents David McCay, Robert Bergman and Renette Senum. Only Robert Bergman has filed to run for re-election.
Nevada City will also elect a City Clerk and City Treasurer, currently both offices are held by Neil Locke.
Nevada County Superior Court seats1, 2 and 3 are up for election.
