Welcome to the Nevada County Democratic Party



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 7:30 pm on the first Tuesday of the month at the Banner Grange in Grass Valley. We’ve hosted many candidates and speakers about the various propositions on this year’s ballots. We will be continuing the program focusing on the political and economic issues of the day.

We are the Democratic Central Committee of Nevada County, aiming to bring up to date information to the citizens of Nevada County.

Please note the following changes starting in September; We are moving our office to 138 New Mohawk Rd. Nevada City 95959. All committee meetings and organizational materials will be at this new address. Because of the increased size of our Central committee, those meetings on the third Thursday of each month will be held at the Banner Grange (except Sept. meeting will be the third Wed. Sept 17th at the New Mohawk address)

Directions to New Mohawk. From HWY 49 take the Gold Flat exit. Stay on Gold flat about 1 mile following the road to the left. Follow the signs to the Railroad Museum. Turn left onto New Mohawk Rd. and go up the hill to the 138 building. We are in the same building as the Friendship club and others.

We are also moving the location of our First Tuesday Educational Forum to the Banner Grange location at 12629 McCourtney Rd. Grass Valley, Ca. – about 1 mile past the fairgrounds. It is more centrally located, has better parking and is a bigger facility.

Thank you for your support!
