How do I run for office?

I've decided now is the time for me to run for office. I don't know where to start. Help!

We have an Election Services Committee that runs a training program for our candidates. Some of the procedures for running vary depending on what office you want to run for, so the best bet is to ask us what steps you need to take to get going. The number one mistake most candidates make is they start too late. Make a decision well before it's time to circulate petitions, and start recruiting volunteers and donors.

Here's a great little guide for first-time candidates: 101 Steps to Victory
