Are you interested in running for office?

There are some differences between running for Truckee Town Council versus one of our Special District offices.  Most significantly, you must be nominated for the Truckee Town Council.   A minimum of twenty signatures is required on your petition.  In contrast, you need only apply to run for an office on one of our Special District Boards.  All candidates running for office in Eastern Nevada County can make an appointment to file for office or simply get additional information. 

For Town Council Candidate information, please call (530) 582-2924 for an appointment.
