Thanks to statewide support, we’ve reached our original goal of collecting 20,000 signatures, but there’s no stopping now! You can help us collect more signatures and show the broad support for ratification across the state.
WHAT YOU NEED
Collect Signatures: Click here to download a copy of the petition that you can print and bring with you to events and collect signatures. We recommend using a clipboard and bring extra pens. Remember to tell people they can OPT-IN for email updates by providing their email address.
Once you’ve collected signatures, it is of greatest assistance if you can enter the information, which can be done in several ways:
1) Download a blank spreadsheet (Mac version / PC version) to enter all the names you’ve collected and email the completed form to us here (remember to use a blank form if submitting another completed form at a later date).
2) Enter the collected signatures in the online petition form.
3) Alternatively, if you are unable to enter the information, you can snap a photo of the completed sheets and email them to us here.
