A City of Nevada City Elected Clerk, Measure W ballot question was on the November 4, 2008 ballot for voters in the City of Nevada City in Nevada County, where it was defeated.

Measure W asked voters if the position of city clerk should be elected by citizens or appointed by the City Council. A "yes" vote was a vote to move from a system of electing the city clerk to a system of the city council appointing the clerk.

Measure X, a measure to elect rather than appoint the city treasurer of Nevada City, was on the same ballot. It also was defeated.

Fomer Nevada City Mayor Steve Cottrell, who argued against both Measure W and Measure X, said, "I was not surprised at the results. The measures were put on the ballot, the voters have spoken and made their decisions. I never second-guess the voters, and I don’t expect (the measure to appoint a city clerk) will appear on a ballot again in my lifetime."
