Run for Office

The Build our Bench tool lets you look up what races are on the ballot in 2018 and shows you if we still need a Democrat to step up to run. Use it to run yourself, or help us recruit someone from your community. Although the filing deadline has passed, when we find Democrats who are willing to run for office, we can help their county party hold nominating conventions to get their names on the ballot.

Are you running but don’t see your name on the Build or Bench tool? Let us know — Send us your info at info@iowademocrats.org.


Training

We know how hard it is to make sense of what resources and trainings are out there and then to go out and find them.  We’ve compiled training resources and events to put them in one spot for you to see.

Be sure to sign up to receive action alerts about upcoming training opportunities, important campaign deadlines, and other relevant announcements.
