Important Tips

Remember to bring water and snacks, and to protect yourself from the sun. Standing outside for long periods of time can be physically demanding. Wearing a wide-brimmed hat is highly recommended to protect yourself from sun exposure.

Always verify that people who sign are registered to vote in the City of Denver and that they write the address under which they are registered to vote. If we have too many signatures from people who are not registered to vote in the city, we may think we have more valid signatures than we actually have, and we may come up short in the end.

If someone makes a mistake, ask them to put a line through all the entry boxes, and use the next line down to enter the correct information

Please be very careful with petition packets, not to lose them or damage them. Pay close attention to the staples and fold the pages carefully as you move through the packet. If the staples come undone, the entire petition packet will be invalid. Officials will examine petition packets for signs of tampering with staples or in any other way.

Do not fill out any portion of the last page of the petition packet until you are instructed to do so by a notary. Petitions must be notarized to be accepted, and this page must be filled out in the presence of a notary public.
