Run for Office - 2022 Regional Elected Positions

August 2, 2022

There are currently 40 positions available in our region for the upcoming November 8, 2022 election. This document, provided by Truckee Town Clerk Judy Price, lists the positions and when they meet, as well as the average time commitment each position entails. Local leaders can make a big difference in our community. Discover leadership positions available beyond the Town Council seats.  

The Town of Truckee and our special districts have governing bodies that consist of five members. Every two years, either two- or three-members terms are up for consideration on the regular election schedule. Occasionally, members vacate positions mid-term causing additional seats for shorter terms to be available. The Town continues to offer assistance to the Nevada County Elections Department by accepting candidate filings for the Nevada County special districts seats. This allows locals to put their hats in the ring for local board and commission seats without having to travel to Nevada City to file their candidate paperwork. The candidate filing period for the November 2022 election opened July 18 and will close August 12 for some seats, while other will extend to August 17 (see the Truckee Town Clerk for specifics).

For additional information regarding where to file, see the Town of Truckee election page. If you are not in a position to run for office right now – please stay informed, read, and watch our local forums* to help you make your decisions on who to vote for and VOTE!

*Forums will be held in early October. Check in September for dates/times.
