Petition Information

March 22, 2017

Some helpful information about how to sign petitions from the St. Louis Labor Council.

“However you signed your voter ID card is exactly the way the petition has to be signed.” For example, if your voter ID is registered John Q Public, and John signs the petition John Public, they will throw it out.

If you have any questions how your name is registered, call the election board for your area.

The board of elections should be sending out notices about the April 4th election. Please look at this notice, as it tells you the location of your polling place. It also shows how your name is registered for voting.

Please take that card and put it in your purse or wallet so you will know how to sign your name on a petition correctly. This truly matters, as the Missouri Secretary of State’s office will throw out your signature if it doesn’t match.
