Welcome to the Nevada County Democratic Party
ATTENTION NEVADA COUNTY DEMOCRATS
The Nevada County Democratic Central Committee (NCDCC) member elections will take place during the June 2016 Primary election cycle.
Nomination papers are available from the Nevada County Department of Elections office at 950 Maidu Avenue, Nevada City beginning on January 4, 2016. Their phone number is 530-265-1298. All Nevada County registered Democrats are eligible for election to the Democratic Central Committee. Candidates are elected by Supervisor Districts. There are six positions in District 1, four positions in District 2, four positions in District 3, five positions in District 4, and four positions in District 5.
Eligible candidates will need to obtain 20 valid Democratic voter signatures from residents residing in their Supervisor District to be nominated for election. Nomination papers must be returned to the Department of Elections no later than February 25, 2016.
The Nevada County Democrats, led by the central committee, is the on-going “keeper of the flame” for the Democratic Party in Nevada County. We provide educational and social activities, an office, outreach, voter registration, and data management which keeps our party building momentum from one election year to the next. During election season, we manage the coordinated election campaign through our relationship to the California Democratic Party, provide space, money, activities, and volunteers to help our candidates get elected and to support the Democratic recommendations for voting on the propositions on the ballot.
In 2010, we initiated the First Tuesday Democrats, an informal gathering from 5:30 to 8:00 pm on the first Tuesday of the month at the Peace Lutheran Church (828 W. Main) in Grass Valley. Please note new location starting Jan 2016. We’ve hosted many candidates and speakers about the various propositions on ballots. We will be continuing the program focusing on the political and economic issues of the day.

DARAKA LARIMORE-HALL, Ph.D., secretary of the California Democratic Party, spoke at our fundraiser luncheon held at the Alta Sierra Country Club May 3lst. He is a lifelong political activist and community organizer from Santa Barbara who had extremely important and helpful things to say in support of our efforts here in Nevada County. He was just as spellbinding and energizing as he was when he spoke at the recent California Democratic Party Convention held in Anaheim May 15th through the 17th.
His focus was the importance of political activism, of politics, on a local level in order to: communicate our values and the policies we support to everyone in our community; get out the vote and to make local officials accountable. He also clarified the importance of our Democratic Party as a conduit to power to enact the policies that reflect our progressive values and improve the lives of ordinary Americans. Single issue affiliated groups as well as “decline to state” voters need to be made aware of the importance of voting for Democrats to achieve their goals. Our volunteerism is essential to be able to see the changes that need to happen in the course of our lifetimes and in the interest of the next generation.
Our very own LILY MARIE-MORA was acknowledged as Volunteer of the Year. She not just a seasoned, tireless volunteer but also is an established advocate for peace and for all of us who believe that war is not the solution to promoting our democratic principles, values and vision for the future.
