Candidate Training Path
Since our creation in 2003 our candidate training programs are at the heart of the work that we do to change the face of power in Texas. We have two flagship training programs for candidates as well as more advanced workshops to continue candidate education throughout the election process.
You may be years away from your first election or considering a run soon. You may be struggling with the question: can I really do this? Or, do I really want this? Whatever questions you have about running for office, Annie’s List wants to help you find the answers.
