Public service is a very admirable goal. The laws concerning who is eligible to run for certain public offices vary from state to state. Here are some things to check out to get you started.

- Check any age requirements (for example you must be at least 25 to run for Congress).
- Check any residency requirements (some offices require you to be a resident for a set time period prior to running).
- Check the required number of signatures to be placed on the ballot.
- Research any applicable campaign finance laws or regulations.
