Candidates for office seeking Chicago DSA’s endorsement should fill out this form to begin the endorsement process.
Candidates who apply for endorsement will receive our candidate questionnaire. After they return their answers, the Electoral Working Group will vote on whether to interview candidates. Selected candidates will be interviewed by the Electoral Working Group. The Electoral Working Group will vote on recommending an endorsement, then the Executive Committee of Chicago DSA will also vote on recommending an endorsement. If a candidate receives one recommendation, they move on to a vote by the full membership. A 2/3 vote to endorse by the membership is needed to receive an endorsement.
