Using public data and SC WIL proprietary research, the facilitator will help participants identify which offices are most likely to be winnable based on historical voting data. Our application does not take issues into consideration. The relative commitment and regional recognition of the candidate can be layered on the candidate’s evaluation of her opportunity. Our purpose is to evaluate where political opportunities exist within a region or district. Learn more about Opportunity Seats.

Screenshot from the Opportunity Seats database.SC WIL has taken public data derived from multiple previous elections and applied proprietary techniques to analyze precincts and districts that are most open to change. Using this database, the facilitator will help prospective candidates evaluate whether or not opportunities to challenge the seat are viable for a particular district.

NOTE: Data is available to a precinct level which may assist county candidates but deliver less insight for municipal candidates.

This program will assist those seeking a competitive elected office. If you are interested in appointed office, please contact Emily Bowerman, our Director of Appointed Office.

Opportunity Seats is part of the live, virtual Office Hours workshop series. View the full schedule of Office Hours workshops dates and topics. Check back often for additional dates as sessions will be repeated throughout the year.
