  • Petition signers must be “qualified electors” and reside in the district with which the candidate is seeking election. For this race, that means all signers must reside within Dane County.


  • You do not need to be registered to vote to sign the petition but rather eligible to register and vote. That generally means 18 years or older, a U.S. Citizen, has lived in the County for at least 28 days, and has not lost the right to vote due to a criminal felony conviction for which the person is currently on probation, parole or extended supervision.


  • Petition circulators must be eligible to vote in Wisconsin, but do not need to reside within the district. So, people from outside Dane County can be “circulators,” which means they can get signatures, they just can’t sign the petition themselves.


  • Petition circulators must personally witness each signature, this means papers cannot be left unattended for signature collection. 


  • Please do not sign and date the bottom until AFTER you have collected the signatures from the public. If the petition includes any signatures dated after your signature date, then those signatures will be invalid.

  • Make sure the names and addresses are legible and that all information is filled out in its entirety. The phone number and email fields are not mandatory; all other fields are required by the Dane County Clerk and the signature may not be counted if any information is incomplete.

  • Before handing in completed petitions, make sure you have signed and dated the bottom of the page. 


  • Please DO NOT number the pages in the bottom right hand corner; the campaign will enter page numbers.


  • You do not need to fill out all signature lines on the page. If you can only get a few, that’s fine.


You may gather signatures by going door to door, circulating them at appropriate events, or on public property. If you're on private property, you must gain the property owners' permission before gathering signatures there.
