Help Our 2020 Candidates Get On the Ballot! - Rules for Signing Ballot Petitions

  1. Petition signers must be a registered Illinois voter and fill in the address where they are currently registered. If a signer states that they have recently moved or are about to move, and states that they will definitely register at their new address before the conclusion of the petitioning period (July 20, 2020), they should fill in their new address on the petition.
  2. People can sign our petition if they signed a petition for any other party or independent candidate for any office for the recent Primary Election.
  3. People cannot sign our petition if they signed a petition for any other party or independent candidate for the same offices for the November 2020 General Election.
  4. People can sign our petition and go on to vote for whomever they like. They commit to nothing by signing, and signing will not affect a person’s party affiliation for future elections.
  5. A lot of people will ask if their names will be “put on a list”. It will not. The petitions are submitted to the State Board of Elections for verification purposes and that’s all. We will not contact them based on their signature.
