Democracy Relief During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Democracy Relief During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Grassroots candidates running to serve our communities in public office cannot meet current petitioning requirements to appear on the election ballot while also following social distancing guidelines designed to save lives during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We are requesting emergency relief of petitioning requirements, either:

  • Dramatically lowering signature requirements
  • Granting automatic ballot access
  • Replacing petitioning with a reasonable filing fee

...so that COVID-19 cannot claim democracy as a victim in 2020.
