If you are going to run for FEDERAL office (US House/Congress), US Senate, or President, you must make sure you are eligible to run. You will need to verify the filing dates and criteria with your state as they may change due to redistricting. You will sometimes need to get a large number of signatures from registered voters in the district where you wish to run and/or you may need to pay filing fees to the government and/or pay fees to the Republican or Democratic party, if you wish to run as a Republican or Democrat.

Please understand what all the deadlines, filing requirements and fees are. In some states, filing fees to run for congress can be more than $10,000.00 (Florida and others). In some states there is no filing fee. Fees and deadlines vary from state to state.
