Run for Office

We’re looking for interested people from our community to run for office in 2022 (and beyond).

See below for some commonly asked questions!

I think I want to run. What do I do?

If you’re interested in running for office in 2022, please get in touch with us!

If you’re just kind of vaguely interested in running for office, also please go ahead and get in touch with us.

I don’t want to commit to anything. Should I still reach out?

After you reach out, we’ll connect you to some of our FCDP members who’ve run for office in the past. They will give you an honest look at the good and the bad of running a campaign and help you talk through some of the early steps to decide if it’s a good fit for you right now.

How do I know what office I can run for?

The first step is to know what district you live in. We can help with the rest.

If you’re unsure what district you live in, you can check your voter registration at Arkansas Voter View to view your districts for different offices.

Different offices are up for election at different times, but it’s never too early to get started!

What about nonpartisan races (like mayor)?

The Faulkner County Democratic Party doesn’t certify candidates for nonpartisan elections, but we’ll be more than happy to help you understand the process! Contact us today!
