How to Run For Local Office Workshop – June 9, 2018

May 7th, 2018|Comments Off on How to Run For Local Office Workshop – June 9, 2018

If you think you might run for office this year – or are working for someone who is – this FREE workshop will provide you with everything you need to know about running for an Assembly or School Board seat. This workshop is a collaborative effort of the Municipal Clerk’s Office, Juneau Votes, and the Juneau League of Women Voters.

This October, Juneau voters will elect a Mayor, two Assembly and three School Board members. This year our workshop  is on Saturday, June 9, 2018, from 9am to 1pm in the Assembly Chambers.

At the Workshop potential candidates, their campaign helpers, or others who are only thinking about running in the future, will learn all about what the jobs entail, deciding and preparing to run, how to get elected, and what happens if/when you win. Each attendee is given a full printed ToolKit of information, including election requirements, the forms that have to be filed as well as many other resources for planning to make a run for the Assembly or School Board.

Follow this link to the Juneau League of Women Voters’ website to register to attend the workshop!
