Petitions

This page is intended to help experienced petition circulators to print off extra forms or to get started before visiting the Board of Elections. If you are a first-time candidate or have any questions, we advise that you visit our office in-person to retrieve your petitions and receive guidance from Board staff.

Please also reference the 2020 Candidate Requirement Guide for extra information, i.e. filing deadlines, number of signatures required for each style of petition, and filing fees.  We prefer all forms be printed as two-sided copies on legal-sized paper.

Lastly, please be sure to print-off the petition checklist that we require to be present at the time of filing your petitions.
