Sign your candidate’s petition
Candidates traditionally gather their signed voter petitions at social and campaign events and by knocking on doors. Restrictions from COVID-19 have made that difficult, if not impossible.
The state has agreed to allow candidates to gather petitions online. You may download your preferred candidate’s petition, complete, sign and date it; then snap a photo and email or text back to the candidate. Snail mail works too, although the deadline is nearing!
What is the petition for?
In lieu of paying a qualifying fee to be on the ballot, a candidate may collect and submit petitions using the Candidate Petition Form. The candidate will need one percent of the registered voters in the last general election. (Requirements for municipal elections may be different.) The voter must sign and date the petition. You may sign petitions for multiple candidates.
NOTE: Signing a petition does not commit you to voting for that candidate.
