Running For Office Starter Kit

The Cook County Clerk’s office has created the free Running for Office Starter Kit (RFO) to allow Cook County residents to view the elected offices they are eligible to run for and receive the necessary information and documentation to complete the challenging process of running for office.

Users can simply enter basic information such as their name, birthdate and address to view available offices, filling dates and signature requirements.

Within minutes the RFO displays all available contests and relevant information while also generating a candidate packet complete with the Statement of Candidacy, Loyalty Oath and Petition for Nomination forms – saving time, money and costly mistakes that can bump prospective candidates off the ballot.
