Can a person with a criminal record run for President of the US?

You can run for federal level office positions like president, vice president, U.S. House of Representatives, or the U.S. Senate with a criminal record; even a felony. You just have to meet the residency and age requirements according to the United States Constitution. In state and local elections, depending on the state, there are certain criminal restrictions. For example, if you are running for public office in Georgia, regardless if it was the State House of Representatives or city council, a public office holder must not have any felony convictions or pending charges at the felony level. Check your state to see the specific requirements.
