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.
