Run for Office

ELECTED OFFICES

If you have a clean background, a history of honorable community service, support Republican principles and have what it takes to win an election, then we urge you consider running as a Republican candidate.

There are hundreds of elected offices Travis County residents are eligible to run for, from your local water utility district board, school board, city council, State legislature, all the way to United States Congress.  See if there's a seat you would like to run for at this link.

Please give us a call at headquarters (512-302-1776) and let's put our minds together on the best way to utilize your talents.

A great way to build experience before putting your name on a ballot is to seek appointment to a commission or office. The City of Austin and Travis County have many, as does the State of Texas. See below for some opportunities to build your resume!
