This chapter examines the impact of the regulation of candidacy on the electoral system and democratic process. It suggests that controls over candidates fall into two main categories. These are the requirements to be recognized as a candidate and the restrictions on the campaign activities of candidates and their supporters which most often concern the raising and spending of political money. This chapter describes a set of requirements for candidacy which mirrors the standards of community membership, competence, and autonomy imposed for suffrage.

Keywords:   political candidacy, electoral system, democratic process, political campaign, autonomy, suffrage
