Endorsement Applications

The deadline to apply for National endorsement for Nov 3rd elections is September 15th. Please fill out the endorsement application by then if you would like to apply.

If you are a campaign seeking DSA’s National Endorsement, DO NOT use this form, as only chapters can apply for a National endorsement. You first need to be endorsed by your local chapter, then they can apply for your campaign. Campaigns that apply without a chapter that has endorsed them will not be considered, but will instead be pointed to their nearest local chapter to apply for their endorsement.

Chapters can apply for a National endorsement or shortened process re-endorsement (for reelections) for their candidate or ballot initiative by filling out this form.

After a chapter fills out a request for a national endorsement, their point person will be contacted by the NEC for a one-on-one meeting and then sent additional forms for their campaign & chapter to fill out, including a questionnaire & dossier. Chapters applying to re-endorse a previously endorsed campaign in their re-election will have a shortened application.
