General Election Day is coming up quicker than we think and nomination documents are now available.

The filing period has started and closes next month.

Due to COVID-19, candidate filing will be by appointment only during regular business hours. Candidates can request an appointment to pick up nomination documents or request documents to be mailed or emailed.

To request documents, you can contact the Kern County Elections Division at (661) 868-3590 or email

For city elected positions you can contact the appropriate city.
