In grade school, I ran for secretary, but I lost. But didn't know why. I got SO mad I lost. Come to find out, I didn't realize I actually had to um, campaign to win? *falls down laughing hysterically* (I do laugh thinking about that though)

...of all the people running, I still lost. My teacher reassured me that it was all a popularity contest, and I knew he was right. Later that day I got my acceptance letter to high school, so I knew that this loss wasn't worth lingering on.

Came out of nowhere and I ran for 8th grade class president. My mom supported me fully, and made tons of little buttons for my "campaign", but I later found them on the ground in the playground :'( despite the fact that I had the best grades...

Probably, but nothing important, just in school or in the Boy Scouts. I don't remember, but I do remember holding minor offices, so I assume I ran for them.

I think I was elected Vice President of my 4H club when I was in 2nd grade or so. Except the whole club fell apart about a month later.
I never ran for anything else that I recall.

No. I've been asked to run for president or Vice President two years in a row now and turned both down. The head of the SGA has in turn appointed me as an appointed member. I'll do it. Less work 😂.

I ran for student council last year, and lost. I went to ask the teacher in charge what I could improve on. He said the reason he didn't put me in was because he "didn't feel a connection with me". Seriously?! The student government is corrupt.
