Run for office

Want to make a difference in your community? Run Local!

The Maine Democratic Party runs a program that recruits and trains Democratic candidates to run for local office and win.

Now more than ever, we need Democratic voters to stand up and fight for progressive values in their communities. County commissioner, school board member, town manager, city councilor – these are just a few examples of local roles with a big impact.

Elected positions and campaign processes vary throughout the state. We are here to provide you with the training you need to run a smart, successful campaign in your town! 

Whether you are a candidate, ready to run, or thinking about running, this training is for you! Sign up for one of our free, monthly, online, live trainings:
