What city, county, or state codes must I follow when considering wiring a receptacle for an electric range? Is there a difference between 3-wire and 4-wire?

Use of the National Electrical Code (NEC) is often mandated by state & city juristicion. It's important to find out what regulations apply in your region before you begin any work. You should seek advice from your local Town Hall as to where you can get clarification on the relevant standards.

You must follow the rules of the NEC. Which is the national electrical coad. The difference between 3 and 4 wire is that 3 wire is two hots and a gound and 4 wire has two hots, ground, and neutral. Either will work.

Not knowing where you live, the best place to check for code would be with your city. Most older electric ranges (older than 5 years) probably have 3 wire, most codes now require 4 wire. 4 wire is where the ground wire is connected via the receptacle versus the 3 wire where it is to the unit.
