Do not circulate petitions until September 5, 2023. You may fill the upper portion out on your computer, or print and fill it out by hand. Instructions and tips are at ABC's of Petitions on this site. Here are some of the basics:
PCs need a minimum of 7 signatures but get at least 10.
Signers should sign with the same name and form that they are registered to vote with.
Signers need to be registered voters who live in your precinct.
They should sign with pen…not pencil. Let’s keep honest people honest.
What you need is their signature! The rest of the information can be added by the circulator, however it is better to have signers enter their own address.
The circulator MUST witness signatures themselves.
Per the State Board of Elections, standard abbreviations may be used in writing the voter’s address.
You may pre-fill County (and the City if your precinct is located in one city) to save time.
Avoid ditto marks!
DO NOT SIGN THE AFFIDAVIT AT THE BOTTOM UNTIL YOU ARE IN FRONT OF A NOTARY!
DO NOT NUMBER YOUR PETITIONS UNTIL YOU ARE PUTTING YOUR ENTIRE PACKET TOGETHER.
Yes, you can sign your own petition. However, if you are a notary, do not notarize a petition that contains your own signature.
Spread the Word!
Sign in if you'd like new recruits to be credited to you.
