Thank you for writing about petition rules. Petitions are a very powerful form of public expression, and their use is regulated very carefully. If you are planning to circulate a petition, you must meet the following criteria for your petition to be recognized as legal:
--All signers must be registered as voters in <county>
--All signatures must be accompanied by the signer's printed name and address
--the petition's intent must be made clear on a legible cover page, which cannot be obscured at any time
If you follow these rules to the letter, you should have no problems having your petition acknowledged as the important statement of public opinion that it is. Thank you for writing, and good luck.
