Endorsements from respected elected officials can add a great deal of political support and credibility to your candidacy or campaign. Voters will often assume that your platform or policies mirror those of elected these officials they support.

Endorsements from local newspapers can be extremely influential to voters. Contact the editorial board for an interview, be informed of the issues that the editorial board will cover.  Be prepared  to clearly state your platform and policies on the issues to be covered to receive their political support and endorsement.

For example, local unions, community groups, or political parties. These organizations may approach a candidate, but more likely, you will  need to ask for these endorsements. Often these organizations will require you to complete a questionnaire about the issues that are important to the organization, in order to be considered for their endorsement. These endorsements can also provide the added benefits of campaign support, contributions, phone banks, volunteers, GOTV efforts and more.

Generally, political endorsements are not considered to  be an insurance that a campaign will succeed.
