Nevada City, CA — A petition to change Nevada City’s name to “Nevada Fucking City” has garnered enough signatures from residents to put the question to voters in the next election.

Heather Donna Hue, on behalf of the Hella Nevada County group on the Facebook web site and Gish Gallop newspaper, submitted 265 signatures to the county’s election office for verification.

207 valid signatures, representing 10% of the total registered voters within city limits (2,070), are needed to qualify a petition for a spot on the ballot. The Elections Office verified 265 of the submitted signatures, representing 13% of the registered voters in Nevada City.

“We hope this significant showing helps convince the voters of Nevada City to consider changing the name,” said Hue outside of the The Curly Wolf coffee house. “Seriously, this town is fucking amazing. So much so that I left Hollywood to grow weed, write my first book, and produce a new TV sitcom based on my experiences living here. The energy here is beyond words.”

According to the Nevada County Registrar of Voters, no additional cost would be charged to taxpayers to put the proposed name change on the next ballot . The city will have space on the upcoming June ballot already, namely to elect three of its five council members. The cost of approximately $1.25 per voter does not increase if there is an additional ballot measure for Nevada City voters.

Many similar ballot measures to change the name of the small town have been soundly defeated by voters since the last official name change of “Nevada” to Nevada City in 1864.

To recoup the costs of making signs and T shirts for the “Nevada Fucking City” signature petition, Mrs. Hue is asking for residents to purchase their own “Nevada Fucking City” T-shirts and wear them as much as possible. The T-shirts are $25,  made by American Apparel and come in sizes XS to XXL. The colors available are Tri Color Green, Plum, Grey or a V-neck in black. Please message the Nevada Fucking City page on Facebook if interested.
