BCDP Training Institute Sessions
on Running for Office
In 2022, there will be many opportunities to run for political offices. The Beaufort County Democratic Party is offering a series of training opportunities for those interested in running for elected office.
This first session (offered on 3 different dates) will answer some of the most asked questions about running for office such as what positions in the state, county, and towns are up for election in 2022 and what should you know to make an informed decision about running for office. This training is also useful for those who are interested in working on a campaign or getting further involved with elections. This “nuts and bolts” session will include reviewing a checklist of how to prepare for announcing a run for political office as well as ample time for questions and answers.
This Session will be offered on the following dates:
