Without Democrats on the ballot your vote, money, efforts and hopes don’t really matter. We must have a candidate for every position in every election!
During the last election, 24 of us ran for a political office, finally giving our neighbors a choice of political parties and setting a precedent for the candidates and voters of the future.
Thinking of running for office? Begin by participating in a free BCDP Run for Office Information Session that you can sign up for on this website. Here you can explore your options and learn the basics. The Blount County Election Commission will be your next stop. This is where you will receive and turn in your candidate paperwork. The non-partisan staff are helpful and a wealth of knowledge. Check out their website and Election Information.
