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.
