You can record your own video using a front-facing, or selfie, camera. You can also have a staff or family member record the video for you.
Step two, respond to the following questions.
Answers to the questions below should be included in your video. Please begin each answer with a summary of the question (I ran for office because…etc.)
- Introduce yourself (Name, Title, City, State)
- Why did you run for office?
- What challenges and advantages have you faced as a woman in the public service?
- What is your message to young women?
