If you are considering to run for a County or State Elections please contact us.

The Democratic Party can assist with your campaign.


The 2018 Elections are coming up quickly. If you are considering to file for an office, "The application is filed with the county chair for the single-county district offices, county and precinct offices. The application is filed with the state chair if the office sought is a multi-county district office or state office."  County Chair, Thom Hanson Cell: 254-479-8369

You can receive all forms, applications and information from the County Chair and/or the Texas Secretary of State Office at,

APPOINT A TREASURER. You may not take or spend any money until you do. Find out more at the Texas Ethics Commission.

Notes from their instructions: "If you plan to run for a public office in Texas (except for a federal office), you must file this form when you become a candidate even if you do not intend to accept campaign contributions or make campaign expenditures."

"A filing fee paid to a filing authority to qualify for a place on a ballot is a campaign expenditure that may not be made before filing a campaign treasurer appointment form with the proper filing authority."

For the 2018 elections, filing for public office opens November 11, 2017, and closes at 6 PM on December 11, 2017. Since the filing deadline is 6 PM on Monday, December 11, I will be available the last weekend, Saturday Dec. 9 and Sunday afternoon Dec. 10. Once filing has begun, you can file any time up through the last day. I will be available each day from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm.

We are looking forward to working with you. I will meet you at your convenience and location.
