Volunteer To Signup For Signature Collection
“If something needs fixing, then lace up your shoes and do some organizing. If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clip board, get some signatures, and run for office yourself” – President Barack Obama in his farewell speech
Some of us might not be the ones to run for office, and we might also like the work our elected officials are doing. But signature collection is a vital part of the democratic process to ensure ballot access for those who do seek to represent us. We can do our part by gathering signatures.
This is now the signature drive phase of the election cycle and collection tables with shifts have been arranged. The tables have papers for many Democratic candidates seeking state-wide and also local elections.
