Dem candidates for state and US offices are shown on our 2020 Candidates page.

You can see the list of municipalities contained in each PA Senate and House district here.

At its Feb. 13 Endorsement Convention (see calendar for details), the Chester County Committee will consider endorsing candidates for these offices:

<< Representative in Congress, PA-06

Senator in the General Assembly, districts 9 and 19 (n.b. 3 of the 4 districts include parts of other counties; 2 are up for election every 2 years)>>

 

 

 

 

<< Representative, PA House districts 13, 26, 74, 155, 156, 157, 158, 160, 167 (n.b. 4 of the 9 districts include parts of other counties; all are up for election every even year.

PA Attorney General, Auditor General, and Treasurer (4-year terms) > >

CCDC does not endorse for:

• President and Vice-President of the US
• Delegates to the Democratic National Convention (see more on that election process here)

How does the process of running for office work?

  • Consult others, choose what to run for, start to gather support, set up social media.
  • Form an advisory team.
  • Start gathering signatures to get your name on the ballot (but not before February 19th)
  • Ask for CCDC endorsement at the Nomination Convention, usually in February. Winning that endorsement is helpful, but CCDC helps all candidates to get their names before the public.
  • If CCDC does not endorse any candidate for that office, then you can ask zone committees for endorsement.
  • The winners of the primary election in May (April in presidential years) become the party’s candidates for the general election.
  • Then come six months of campaigning to win in November. Of course, our candidates get lots of support from the party and the grassroots.
