County City and Other Local Offices
Run for office!
Federal, State, and Local offices are all important for ensuring our party growth.
Contact the State Coordinating Committee or your local chapter if you are considering running. We are looking to run candidates for both partisan offices (such as State or US Congress and Senate) and non-partian offices (City Council, various boards).
We can help you with paperwork, treasury, volunteers, voter lists, and free assistance consulting on how to navigate your way through the process. Everybody should run for office at least once. Consider it your duty. If you've never run for office before and don't like the limelight of a higher office, consider joining a neighborhood association. You might find it's fun to be contributing to your community through civic engagement, even if it involves just your local neighbors. Think globally, act locally!
