    You have to go to City Hall or the County Courthouse and find out how many signatures you need to get put on the ballot. Then you start your campaign. I would make sure that there are no people running on similar platforms. If they are incumbants, you really haven't got a chance.

    First start attending your town meetings. Rally your neighbors around your favorite causes. Show some results. Call and then Go to the board of elections and register (or with a party). Then get your required petitions signed so they will give you money to run.

    Join your local political party and gradually work your way up through the ranks.
