To “run” for office you will need to have a “Candidate Committee”.  It is this requirement that bogs people down.  The only way to work “around” this is to fund your own campaign.  This will work well for township positions where there isn’t any real competition.  If you have sufficient resources there are still requirements, but they are less.

Here is the local one sufficient for most local positions, some may require the one that is electronic, then you will have to go onto a website and file it.  The 2nd and 3rd page gives detailed instructions.
