    I live outside the country but will be voting in Illinois via absentee ballot. Is it possible to contribute my signature to the petition in some way?

    You don’t have to go to any of the places on the calendar. They are just suggested opportunities were volunteers can collect a lot of signatures in a short period of time.
    All anyone needs to do to help with the petition drive is download the petition (2nd of the Download Resources listed above) and you are on your way. A petition sheet is valid even with just one signature and the petitioner’s information. You would also need to get the Notarized, at a bank, insurance office, one of our notarization parties, etc. and then get it to us by mail, or in person, before the deadline.

    So if I want to sign to get her on the ballot, can I do that electronically or do I have to go to one of the places on the calendar?
