Running for Office?

Are you interested in running for office?   There are a couple different factors to take in consideration before jumping into a campaign: 


  • Am I eligible to run for office?

  • How much money will I have to raise for an election?

  • What were the results of the last election?

  • What is the time commitment needed for campaigning?


Fairfax Young Democrats can assist young people in their evaluation of running for an office. There are several organizations providing candidate training and consultation. If you are interested in discussing a prospective candidacy, email us at
