What Can I Expect If I Run For Public Office?

I am seriously considering taking my political activism to a more involved place and actually running for office. Nothing huge - I don't even know what to run for, yet.
But in our current political climate, I'm not sure if I can simply accept "showing up at the pollls" as fulfilling my need to be involved in what I believe in.
I would appreciate any help from Metafilterites who have felt the same way in the past, acted on it, and could guide me in thinking this through.
