Q&A for Circulators
Q: What if the prospective petition sheet and the text get separated?
Answer: If the signature sheet and the text become separated after the signatures have been collected but before submission to the Elections Division, the chief petitioner must provide a notarized statement signed by each circulator attesting that at no time during the circulation process were the signature sheets separated from the text of the prospective sponsorship petition. Or, they may begin the process again.
Q: What if someone signs the petition sheet after the circulator has signed and dated it?
A: The circulator must re-sign and re-date the sheet. The circulator must not cross out their original signature or date.
Q: What if a signer enters incorrect information?
A: Signers should correct their own information. If the circulator corrects the information, the signer must initial any change.
Q: Can someone who has legal authority sign for a disabled person?
A: No. No one can sign for someone else. They must sign the petition sheet like they signed their voter registration card.
Q: Can I sign one petition sheet and make copies?
A: No. Original signatures on the petition sheet are required.
