Volunteer FAQ

Answers to frequently asked questions from volunteers.

No, unfortunately there is no “print at home” option for this petition. Because the entire text of the initiative must be presented to each voter who signs it, the petition is multiple pages long and has been carefully reviewed for precise compliance with the law by our attorneys. Signatures on home-printed copies could jeopardize qualification of the initiative. Please be sure everyone signs an official petition. If you need more copies, just call us: 916-444-9950 or 213-384-9656.

No, only the complete, pre-printed petition may be signed. Signatures on extra pages will not count.

By law, any time a change to the constitution is proposed in an initiative, the petition must have the complete section of the constitution printed on the petition, not just the sentences that would change.

The initiative needs 997,139 valid signatures of registered voters to qualify for the November 2022 ballot, so we estimate that we will have to collect 1.3 million signatures to be sure that we make it (signatures will be disqualified if they’re duplicates, in the wrong county, not from a registered voter, or not accompanied by the voter’s correct address). All signatures MUST be turned in to county officials by April 29, 2022, but we will need time to process and sort the petitions by county, so please mail back all signed petitions to us NO LATER than April 15.
