In a matter of weeks, our campaign has distributed 10,000 petitions to our volunteer coordinators and petitioners. Petitioners are beginning to swap out their filled and notarized petitions for new blank forms. The weather has treated us extremely well so far, and it only looks to improve as we move towards spring.
With the campaign settling into a rhythm, I thought now would be a good time to explain our strategy for success in the signature gathering drive. Our strategy consists of a few key elements:
Expanded Timeline: I’ve mentioned this before, but the biggest advantage we possess is having over 15 months to collect signatures. That allows us to move at a steady, deliberate pace and will give ample time to adjust to new information as signature totals from each district pour in.
Volunteer Driven: The extra time also allows our strong base of volunteers to play the leading role. We believe that our volunteer petitioners can average 10,000 signatures each month between now and next spring, which will account for the majority of the necessary signatures. We will supplement our volunteer force with a paid signature gathering firm later this year, but for most Missourians who sign the petition, volunteers will be the face of the campaign.
Can you help the campaign go the distance by making a recurring monthly contribution of $10 today? Or can you make a one-time contribution of $25 to continue training volunteers and printing petitions?
