We’ll run democratic write-in candidates in EVERY district in EVERY state where Republicans are running unopposed.

There are 5,000 seats up for election in November. 13% of those seats will automatically go to Republicans because they have no challengers in the November election. We can’t afford to let Republicans take these seats without a fight!

A nationwide write-in campaign has never been tried. But it can DEFINITELY win seats, energize and mobilize voters, and shake up the political system!

Why Will a Write-in Revolution Work?

This is the ONLY way to get real citizen candidates elected to office. Most people won’t run for office because it costs too much money and is a huge time commitment. This fresh idea allows people to run at NO COST and FAST.

It’s a super short timetable. People only pay attention for a short time when it comes to political campaigns. We’ll get more people engaged exactly when it matters most.

 There are no filing fees or campaign finance rules in most states for write-in candidates. It’s a low-cost way to run for office. You don’t have to pay to play!

Join us and get started QUICKLY! You can run, have the support of the Public Service Party organization (access to a toolkit with a personalized website, flyers, yard signs, and help with stump speeches). We’ll give you the support you need to succeed.

Immediately mobilize voters If you’re a student, get your campus to support you. If you’re a community organizer, connect with your fellow activists and start a campaign. If you have previous political experience, mobilize your base and get in the race!

Change the political process! The more people we get engaged and voting, the more it will help candidates at the top of the Democratic ticket. We can win legislative seats, but if we can ALSO win more governor, US House and Senate seats, we can start to see the change we want in America from the top to the bottom of the political system! It all starts with YOUR VOTE!

Share this idea with everyone you know! The more people who join the party, the more people we have to support progressive candidates for the November election.
