Elections, auditor offices begin remodel process, expected to be complete in February

The Nevada County Elections Office has relocated, the first part of an office switch-up on the second floor of the Eric Rood Administrative Center.

Elections officials lugged their items on Tuesday to the existing Auditor’s Office, a few steps away from their old department. Elections has combined with the Recorder’s Office, both of which are overseen by Gregory Diaz.

“We’re excited about it,” said Sandra Sjoberg, assistant county clerk-recorder/registrar of voters with the Nevada County Elections Office. “It’s going to be good.”

The Auditor’s Office will remain in a part of its original space until mid-December, when it’s scheduled to move into the old elections department. That will provide elections, now combined with the Recorder’s Office, more space for vote tallying and processing ballots come election time, Sjoberg said.

The office shake-up is expected to be complete by mid-February.

The remodel project, awarded by the Board of Supervisors to Jacobs Custom Homes, Inc., costs $318,699.

The elections office is key to running elections; Nevada County residents also can register to vote at the office.

The Recorder’s Office keeps records such as land deeds and marriage licenses.

The auditor is responsible for budget control, disbursements, receipts and the county’s accounting.
