Help candidates with online petition signatures

October 24, 2013

Every election season candidates must gather petition signatures to qualify for the ballot – hundreds of them are required.  And in case an opponent challenges them, candidates try to collect a few hundred more signatures to ensure they are all valid.

Now it is easier  to support candidates running for office by signing their petitions.  You can sign them securely online.

Check it out and while you’re at it, if you reside within Legislative District 15, please sign mine.
