THE CAMPAIGN FOR THE COLUMBUS COMMUNITY BILL OF RIGHTS

Sign Our Petition

We wish you could sign an online petition, but the Franklin County Board of Elections rules are that you must sign a hard copy petition.

To find us and sign our petition, check out our upcoming events. Look for our brightly-colored CCBOR sun t-shirts on volunteeers! And at Comfest we have a dedicated booth for signing the petition.

Guidelines for CCBOR Petitioners

  • A circulator must be a U.S. citizen, a registered voter, and at least 18 years old.
  • A circulator cannot have a felony conviction for which s/he is still on probation.
  • Voter registration forms must be submitted within 10 days.
  • Each signature Must be witnessed by the circulator.
  • Circulators CANNOT sign their own petitions.
  1. Print your name on back of form prior to collecting signatures. Do not share petitions. Only you may collect signatures on yours.
  2. Carry pens. Signatures must be in black or blue ink.
  3. Ensure potential signers are registered Columbus voters. (Helpful rule of thumb: People who may vote for the Columbus mayor are registered in Columbus.)
    Note: If signature is invalid, do not cross out the line. Leave it for the BOE to decide.
  4. Remind signers that signatures must match their official Board of Elections signatures.
  5. Before signers walk away, check for completion and legibility of space.
    Note: Other than the signature, you may fill out other blocks (i.e., address, date).
  6. After collecting signatures, fill in the “valid signatures” space with the highest possible number of valid signatures on the form. (Reason: If the petitioner enters a number that is LESS THAN the number of valid signatures, the Board of Elections will discard the entire form.
