Collecting Signatures for the Nomination Petition
To even get on the ballot, I'm going to need a few thousand signatures from Democrats and Independents who live in District 2. I don't know the exact number I'll need yet (the Secretary of State will likely reveal that information in Spring 2018), but it's never too soon to start collecting them.
If you're able and willing, you can start collecting signatures on my behalf! Friends, family, neighbors, strangers; anyone who qualifies may sign the petition. Here are the details you need to know:
You can download the petition here:
That is a link to the official Partisan Nomination Petition, as provided by Arizona's Secretary of State. Other than filling out the petition in the spaces provided, do not alter the petition in any way, or else the signatures may be disqualified.
The person signing MUST meet the following qualifications:
- They must be registered to vote in Arizona's 2nd Congressional District.
- They must be registered as either a Democrat or an Independent at the time of the election.
- They must NOT sign any other nomination petition for this office. (They can, however, sign nomination petitions for candidates of other offices, such as state legislators or governor.)
If they are not sure what district they live in, they can confirm their district at this website: http://azredistricting.org/districtlocator/
If they are not registered to vote, or if they are interested in changing their party affiliation, they can update their registration at this website: https://servicearizona.com/webapp/evoter/selectLanguage
Finally, you (the person circulating the petition) must fill out the second page of the petition--the one titled "Instructions for Circulators."
When you're done, or when you're ready to send what signatures you've gathered, you can either email me (email@example.com) to arrange a pickup, or you can mail them to:
Charlie for Congress
5202 E 3rd St
Tucson, AZ 85711
If you have any questions about this process, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll try to answer any questions you may have!
