Candidate Information

Candidate Watch is updated every day, Monday through Friday, at approximately 5:00 PM. This list contains candidates who have either been issued candidate filing paperwork or completed filing in Placer County. Please note that the qualified candidate list is not certified until a final review of candidate filing information and documentation occurs shortly after candidate filing is closed. Once the final review is complete, a certified list will be placed on our website and will be labeled as such. If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact the Office of Elections at 530-886-5650 or by e-mail at
