It’s PETITION Season!
Every candidate running to qualify for the April 28 primary election must get signatures on their official petitions. Petitions due February 18, 2020.
Congresswoman Mary Gay Scanlon needs that many signatures
State Rep. Mike Zabel, 163rd District needs that many signatures
Both candidates in 166th Assembly District need that many signatures: Rep. Greg Vitali & Jen Leith, challenger
All EIGHT contestants in State Senate District 17 need that many signatures: Shae Ashe, Sara Atkins, Elvira Berry, Amanda Cappelletti, Linda Fields, Senator Daylin Leach, and Jamie Mogil.
(including 100 from each of at least 5 counties): Statewide candidates for
- Attorney General Josh Shapiro
- Treasurer Joe Torsella
- The FIVE candidates for Auditor General: Nina Ahmad, Scott Conklin, Tracie Fountain, Christina Hartman, Michael Lamb
Petition signing is a small but vital role we can play to get Democratic candidates on the primary ballot. Click the above links on the contested office titles for brief info on the contestants in those races and links to more info.
If asked to sign a petition or two in the coming weeks, here’s what you need to know:
- Signing is NOT a pledge to vote for that candidate
- Sign only if you are confident the person is truly qualified to serve
- Sign for only ONE candidate in each race; may sign for a single candidate in different races
- Sign for Zabel only if you live in the 163rd; sign for Vitali or Leith only if you live in the 166th
Watch this space for results from Delco Democratic Party nominating convention, February 2.
- Will one candidate in contested races get the party’s endorsement?
- Will we have “open” primaries in the contested races?
