Primary Special Election Petitioning
February 4, 2020 @ 7:00 am - 8:00 pm
The primary election to replace Elijah Cummings’ 7th district Congressional seat is on February 4. There is no better place to collect signatures than a poll. Approach voters after they come out from voting – they will tell you they already voted and it’s too late for candidate lobbying. The resultant low-pressure situation lets you briefly explain the situation and ask for their signature. If they agree, they probably have their voter ID card on them or BoE mailing showing their listed address and name on record. Plus you certainly know the proper county (or Baltimore City) for the form. And of course the person is a bona fide registered voter.
Please go to one of these polls and collect signatures. A list of poll locations is here. For this day only, print out forms specifically for one of the three counties in the 7th district: Baltimore City, Baltimore County, or Howard County. After a sheet is completed, put your circulator information at the bottom and sign it before midnight.
There is more information and material on the petition page.
