Sarvis and Carson for Congress Signature Drive - Arlington

We will be out petitioning at Arlington Central Library at 10:30 AM on Saturday.

The campaigns still have a lot of signatures to collect and not a lot of time to collect them!  We need everyone with some spare time over the weekend to come help out so we can achieve ballot access for Carson and Sarvis.

The library is a good location, but ideally we want to spread out to different locations to collect as many signatures as possible.   If you can petition this Saturday, please sign up for this meetup and we will coordinate multiple locations, depending on how many sign up.  We can then meet up for some socializing and drinks afterwards!

Also, you don't have to come to an event to collect signatures.  Independent signature collection is encouraged and greatly appreciated!


Petitioning Info:

Some petitions and clipboards will be available, but it's always helpful to bring more.

Pre-filled petitions for Carson and Sarvis are available here:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/bgkd5fhrnuwtd8l/vjYeBYBKsM

Make sure to print them double-sided, as described by the instructions in the PDF.

A few important points to keep in mind when petitioning:

Fill out the name of the county/city of the people whose signatures you are collecting in the space on the front of the petition page (have people sign the sheet that matches their locality - most likely the locality you are collecting signatures in)

Signatures for Carson must be from people registered to vote in Virginia's 8th Congressional District (Includes Arlington, Alexandria, Falls Church, and some of Fairfax County)

Before turning in the signed petitions, you (the signature collector) must fill out the affidavit on the back of the sheet and sign it in the presence of a notary, who will then notarize the petition.

Give completed petitions to Jeff, or send to Martin Overstrom at 900 N Randolph St, Apt 1702, Arlington, VA, 22203

Sarvis's site has some good instructions for petitioning: http://www.robertsarvis.com/help/ballot-instructions

    If you can make the 10th district convention at 1pm then it would be great to have your vote.
