The Blue Wave begins here!

This past week, more than 650 NDTC-trained candidates were on the ballot. From fighting for school boards to state legislatures, Democrats up and down ballots made their marks nationwide.
And we’re proud of every person who boldly ran for office!

While these election results continue rolling in, you might already be thinking about what the 2024 cycle will bring.

So we have two more opportunities to join us for introductory trainings that will walk you through all the considerations needed to run for office.

Join us on Thursday, November 16 at 6pm ET for So You Want to Run for Office, the comprehensive training on getting your name on the ballot, researching the many elected offices in your community, and building a plan to share the news with family and friends.

Can’t make it next week? Don’t worry!

We have one more opportunity before the end of 2023 to join us for So You Want to Run for Office on Monday, December 4 at 1pm ET.

It’s never too early to jump in and get prepared. Let’s get the blue wave rolling in 2024!
