Right now, getting on the ballot is all about the petition campaign. For the Libertarian Party to have a candidate for Governor, we must collect 15,000 (minimum) signatures. So, we need your help.
Get involved by printing up the Petition. Find 10 friends that want us to have more discussion about issues. Read the details below on how the petition must be filled out. But, in the end, this is a great exercise in democracy – each Michigan citizen can decide to bring a serious, 3rd Party to the table to ensure a REAL debate.
But, act now. Let’s get this done in record time. Bill / #MichiganLibertyRising

2. However, petition circulators who are not residents of Michigan must mark the nonresident box in the Certificate of Circulator and provide their county of registration (if registered to vote in their home state). A petition sheet is invalid and none of the signatures affixed to the sheet shall be counted as valid if the circulator is not a resident of Michigan and fails to mark the nonresident box in the Certificate of Circulator.
3. Before circulating a countywide petition sheet, the circulator must enter the county of circulation in the space provided at the top of the sheet. All voters who sign the sheet must be registered to vote within the county listed in the heading.

5. All voters who sign the sheet must be registered to vote within the county listed in the heading.

7. A petition sheet must be circulated by a single person.
8. The circulator must complete and date the certificate at the bottom of the sheet after gathering the last signature he or she intends to collect on the sheet. Signatures on a petition sheet which are dated after the date on the circulator’s certificate are invalid.
