How to Print, Sign, and Submit a Petition

This page explains everything you need to know to download and print a petition, personally sign it, and return it to one of our collection centers located in your county. Our hope is that you will download, sign, and return all of the petitions.

In addition to these instructions, you can watch our video “How to Print and Sign Petitions.”

Step One – Paper and Ink

1 – Make sure you have a fresh ink cartridge, and only use black ink.

2 – Only use legal size white paper, which is 8.5″ x 14.” You can get this paper at any stationary store. No other size or color of paper or ink color other than black can be legally verified.

3 – Load paper into printer tray – you may have to use the manual tray for the oversized paper.

Step Two – Download Petition

1 – Go to the “Initiatives” page.

2 – Identify the initiatives you would like to sign; a PDF file will appear on your screen.

3 – Select the print icon on the PDF file and click; your petition will print.

Step Three – Fill Out and Sign Petition

It is vital to make sure the petitions are properly filled out. Each person must attest that they are a registered voter, then sign and print their names. Every signer must reside in the county that is noted on the petition. Then as the signature gatherer, you must sign the petition as well. Please carefully review the example below of a correctly filled out petition, or watch the video.
