    I am becoming rather alienated by the current political situation. The high levels of political polarization in Congress and this country in general has made me unable to relate to any candidates in this country because they are too extreme to the left or the right, leaving no room for the middle.

    In response, I want to create my own political party for local elections. But I have been having trouble finding guidance on how to do this. So I have questions for you on this forum (if you have any answers): Do I have to register the party for local elections? Do I have to have a minimum number of members before I can run as a nominated candidate or nominate a candidate?

    Really just anything about the legalities of the process and any advice in general would be useful.

    The process is different in each state.
