This is a list of "stuff" that we recommend you take to "the field":
NEW!!! TAKE a bunch of these WITH YOU to hand out to CASUAL PETITIONERS when you offer them blank forms to fill out with their friends/colleagues/neighbors (THIS IS WORKING OUT GREAT! people are actually filling them out and sending them in):
PETITIONER CHECK LIST:
- PETITION FORMS (bring extras...you'll be glad, and people may want to take some so they can help...so bring LOTS)
click here to find out
WHERE TO GET PETITION FORMS
click here if you can do 2-sided printing and want to
PRINT YOUR OWN
a STAND OUT sign
to attach to a table or to your person or to...well, anything draw attention!
- PETITIONER GUIDEBOOKs:
CASUAL PETITIONER Guidebook
(3 page summary is enough for most people)
SERIOUS PETITIONER Guidebook
(18 page document for the "serious petitioner")
- 3 CLIPBOARDS (or large strong pads of paper that you can clip things to
--- 1 primary clipboard for the forms for the town you're in and the nearby towns
--- 2nd clipboard for "other towns"
--- 3rd clipboard for email sign up list
--- 4th clipboard if you are also gathering sigs for other petitions
Using a cutting board for a Clipboard. Clipboards are only a few bucks. But you might not want to buy one. So we've made this picture for you. Also, if you notice, there are actually a couple cutting boards in the picture... one can be used as a "cover" for raining days. Also, large ziplock bags work nicely too, as do those plastic zip bags that mattress covers and sheets come on...
More things to bring:
CLIP ON A SMALL PIECE OF PAPER to scribble to get pens to work, because we CAN NOT make any marks in the margins of these petition forms.
- EXTRA PENS (dark blue/black)
- A PAD OF PAPER (to collect email addresses and to scribble to get pens working)
- YELLOW STICKIES (
...forms w/marks will be DISCARDED by the state) (you can use the stickies to help sort the forms by town, because NO OTHER MARKS are allowed on the forms, except the signatures, their addresses and the town)
- CLIPS to organize the papers. A milkcrate or other way to organize sheets for different towns may be helpful.
- CELL PHONE, charged... & list of phone numbers: 978 808 7173 (Terra), and whomever you are coordinating w/ regionally
