Request Petitions

4inhand.jpgYou can request petitions by sending an e-mail to and requesting one or more petitions. Be sure to include your name, address and phone.

If convenient you can pick up a petition at one of our listed locations

If you are with an organization  and want more than a few petitions, we may be able to deliver them to your organization. Otherwise we will mail them to you. Email us at:

Once you have your petitions, you can also help recruit others who want to carry their own petitions. Once a person starts signing tell them that this is an all volunteer signature gathering effort and that we need help. Tell them we have extra petitions that they can mail back to us. Ask them if they can take a petition and ask family, friends and others to sign. You'll be surprised how many people will actually want to help and are willing to take a petition. When handing out petitions, be sure to get their contact information (e-mail and phone number) so that we remind them to send their petitions back before the deadline for filing.

You might also want to carry Voter Registration Forms, available online – in case you run into a new Washington resident or one who has moved or changed their name and not yet notified their Election Board. Please note that you only have 5 days to get new voter registration forms into the county elections office.

Before submitting your petition, please be sure to to sign the back of the petition. Remember, fill your petition(s) up as fast as you can, but make sure the information is legible and that you’re only getting voters registered in Washington State. As soon as it’s full or if you feel you’re “done for now,” fold it up and put a stamp on it and send it back to us. You can request more petitions when you sign on the back of the petition and keep going! Thank you!
Any questions?


You can download petitions, but...

Caution!  There are specific requirements when printing copies of the petition. 

Petitions must be printed on white 11” x 17” paper, two-sided. The Secretary of State will disqualify one-sided copies or anything smaller, or taped-together copies. The Secretary of State also requires there be a 1-inch clear margin on the bottom front of the petition.

This means most people will not be able to print them at home. The easiest way is to download the file from the website and print 11" x 17" copies at a commercial printer for your use. They cost less than a dollar.
