Run for Office

Run for Office

If you or someone you know think you have what it takes to make a run for political office, we are here to help! Many races in Idaho go unopposed, and we need new candidates with a fresh vision who are ready to take on the status quo. Technology means you don’t need a lot of money to run a successful campaign; you just need an authentic message and a solid foundation to move our community (or the state/country at the federal level) forward. 

Do you think you have what it takes? Here are some resources to send you to the front of the pack. 

  • Crowdpac – Create a Start Running page and test your potential financial support without the pressure of committing. Collect pledges from your supporters before you declare. 
  • VoteRunLead – Download e-Books, take a primer course, and sign up to “Run as You Are.”
  • Run Women Run – A compilation of resources and links to help women get started in political office. 
  • #ILookLikeAPolitician – A mentorship program designed to encourage young people to run for office. 
  • New Politics – Answering the Call is a program for military veterans or civilian graduates of programs such as AmeriCorp who still are still interested in serving their country in politics. The program will train participants.
