Nevada County candidates have until Aug. 10 to file for office

Candidates for City Council, fire and special districts have until Aug. 10 to file paperwork necessary for a political run.

Several offices — including two spots on the Grass Valley Council — will appear on the Nov. 6 general election ballot.

Candidates for Grass Valley Council file their paperwork at the clerk's office at City Hall, 125 E. Main St., Grass Valley. All other candidates go to the Nevada County elections office in the Eric Rood Administrative Center, 950 Maidu Ave., Nevada City.

Candidates have until Aug. 15 to file their paperwork, if the incumbent doesn't seek re-election.

A handful of candidates who appeared on the June ballot will advance to November's election.

Voters in November will choose either Shannan Moon or Bill Smethers as the next Nevada County sheriff, as none of the three candidates received enough votes in the June 6 primary election to win outright.
