Becoming a Candidate

The Shasta County Elections office publishes a Candidates Guide for regularly scheduled local district elections, conducted every November, and for Primaries in the even-numbered years. Candidates in November of even-numbered years are generally run-off candidates from the Primary held earlier in the same year, and candidates for municipal offices.

Please see this page for previously published Guides. These guides are for reference only, and do not hold the force or effect of law, regulation or rule.

Voters interested in running for State office can see candidate requirements and other information at the Secretary of State’s website.
