Evoting Candidate Requirements
No political experience or campaign donations are required. Just get on the ballot in your state and fulfill the following requirements:
(1) You agree to serve as an independent representative (no political party).
(2) You agree not to accept campaign donations.
(3) You agree to vote, in Congress, consistent with the will of the American People (the Evoting Service “Users”).
(4) You agree to bring, before Congress, the highest prioritized User proposals.
(5) You agree to resign from Congress if the Users demand your resignation.
Evoting Candidates operate independently and campaign as little or as much as they want.
Requirements Under Federal Law
U.S. Senate candidates must be: (1) at least 30 years of age; (2) a U.S. citizen for nine years; and (3) a resident of the State represented on the date he or she would be sworn into office if elected. See U.S. Constitution, Article I, § 3; 20th Amendment, § 1.
U.S. House Representative candidates must be: (1) at least 25 years of age; (2) a U.S. citizen for nine years; and (3) a resident of the State represented on the date he or she would be sworn into office if elected. See U.S. Constitution, Article I, § 3; 20th Amendment, § 1.
Candidates must register with the U.S. Federal Election Commission when: (1) accepting more than $5,000 in “contributions”; or (2) exceeding more than $5,000 in “expenditures”.
Requirements Under State Law
Candidate fees and paperwork requirements are set by state politicians and may change at any time. Please visit the Secretary of State website for your state. Each state's website is uniquely confusing. Alternatively, stop by the “Elections Office” in your county and ask for a “Candidate Guide”. The Candidate Guides are unique to each county and are typically more user friendly than the Secretary of State's website.
Please contact evoteAmerica if you need assistance with the candidate filing process for your state and county. We can also help you set up a crowdfunding webpage to cover the cost of your candidate filing fees and Voter Guide statement.
