How to Sign the Petition these Last Few Days

The last day to sign the petition to get Dr. Jill Stein for President and our other Green Party candidates on the ballot in Illinois is Sunday June 26th.  Here are the options for registered Illinois voters who have not already signed the petition. 

1) Drop by your regional petition notarizing and turn-in party and sign the petition.

2) Contact your regional petitioning team leader and make arrangements to sign the petition. There is a list of regional team leaders on the petitioning page.

3) If you want to go the extra mile, the last resort is to print the petition, sign it, have your family, friends and co-workers sign it, get it notarized (local banks will usually notarize for free) and overnight mail your notarized petition(s) to

Illinois Green Party
Attn: Nancy Wade
2216 W Giddings
Chicago, IL 60625

Note that your notarized petitions must arrive absolutely no later than Saturday June 25th!

See the Petitioning Page for a link to use to print the petitioning sheet.

You will also need to fill in the bottom section of the petition because you are the "circulator" of the petition.

Please DO NOT NUMBER YOUR PETITION SHEETS! They get numbered by the coordinators later.

Also, when notarizing, the name of the person who circulated the petition should be entered in the blank after "Signed and sworn to (or affirmed by)", not the name of the notary.

Sorry this option is so complicated and annoying but this is what we have to do to comply with the Illinois election law.

Thanks so much for your support!  It's In Our Hands!

Donate to provide paper, ink, pens and other supplies for our dedicated volunteer petitioners.

We have volunteers and paid petitioners out every day from dawn to past dark asking registered voters to help by signing our petition.
