Select the criteria for your search. The search examines the possible combinations between political office, political party, and state. If you enter multiple criteria within any of these areas, it will expand the search to include the multiple possibilities. For example, If you select City Attorney from office, Republican from party, and Utah from state, you will view all women who ran for city attorney in Utah and were backed by the Republican Party. If you also include Democratic in your search criteria, the results will show you women who ran for city attorney in Utah and who were backed by either the Republican or Democratic party.
Note that search results will list number of campaign races. The names of some women will appear more than once, if they ran in multiple campaigns.
