Planning to Run for an Office

In order to hold any elected office of the Commonwealth or its governmental units, elective of the people, the candidate must have been a resident of the Commonwealth for one year preceding his election and qualified to vote for that office (Code of Virginia, §24.2-500).

Individuals interested in serving as candidates for any office in Virginia should contact the Virginia Department of Elections. Candidate Information Kits for local and state offices are available for downloading from their web site, or you can request a packet be mailed to you. The packets include all the instructions and required forms necessary to qualify as a candidate. Candidates seeking nomination from a political party should also contact the respective state, district or local party chair for their party.

All state and local candidates in Virginia are required to file economic interest, qualification, and campaign committee organization statements in order to qualify to have their names on the ballot. Depending on whether a party nomination is sought, and the method of such nomination, candidates may also be required to file declaration of candidacy statements and petitions of qualified voters. The Candidate Information Bulletin details the specific documents due, and to whom and when the documents are due.

Candidates are also required to file periodic Campaign Contributions and Expenditures reports on a prescribed schedule. This information is also available in the candidate kit.
