Running for Office

Coming up in the November 2022 election, nearly 200 local non-partisan seats are up for election.

Republicans can win election to non-partisan seats in Santa Clara County because there is no (D) or (R) after the candidate’s name. Example of these seats are:

  • School board
  • City and town councils
  • Special Districts including water, sewer, hospital, open space, etc.

Unfortunately in 2020, Republicans only had 16 candidates running with 196 seats available.

If you are interested in considering running for office this fall, please contact Jan Soule at to start a conversation.

The current Office Holders list shows which seats are up for election in 2021 and 2022

The Registrar of Voters publishes a CANDIDATE GUIDE for each election that provides details that every candidate needs to know to run for office.
