If you’re interested in filing for political candidacy in South Carolina, the best place to go is www.scvotes.org, the website for the South Carolina State Election Commission. Most states probably have similar websites. You can find some very interesting information like how much it costs to file to become a candidate for certain political positions – $3,480.00 for U.S. House of Representatives. But then again, they make $174,000.00 a year. Still, the most interesting information still seems to come from the candidates themselves.
