Additionally here is a booklet from the Secretary of State’s office with Montana’s signature gathering guidelines.
(It’s a 28 page pdf) but it’s full of great, easy to read information.
You’ll be way ahead in signature gatherer training, if you read this booklet.
This booklet also has copies of the petition gatherer affidavit that you must sign for the notary every time you turn in a petition.
It also has a copy of the signature gathering complaint form; I expect our opponents will be filling these out: http://sos.mt.gov/Elections/Officials/Forms/Petition_Forms/Ballot_Issue_Signature_Gathering_Complaint_Form.pdf
However, we will also send our volunteers out with an ‘incident report’ form for you to document any interactions you may have with someone harassing you or interfering with your signature gathering.
Here also is the training that the Secretary of State supplies for all petition signature gatherers:
(It’s a 27 page pdf)
Just for fun,
Here is a link to the voter registration form. Please print as many of these as you can for your signature gathering efforts. (you only need to print page 1). We are still conducting this petition completely as a volunteer effort, so any printing you can do at home will help us out financially. Consider it a donation.
Also, here is the link to see whether your voter status is up to date at the correct address..
Your coordinators and captains are meeting again on Friday morning to discuss how we will proceed.
Please enjoy your weekend,
