When you apply for the permit that information will be provided .

Re: want to run electric from basement to attic

What kind of load do you want to run in the attic?

If it's just a fan and a few lights 12#-2 romex with a ground should work fine.

You will need to install a 20A fuse or breaker.

Re: want to run electric from basement to attic

you are going to have to find out your ordinances here. a 12/2 would probably be sufficient, however certin locations require all wiring to be in conduit such as emt, or fmc. you will need to know what is required in your area.
