Sign a Petition - Get Democrats on the Ballot

On November 8, we will vote for State Assembly and State Senate (along with President, Senator, Congressmember, judges, and ballot initiatives). But before we can vote for Democrats for the State Legislature, we need to get them on ballot. That’s where you come in. To get on the ballot as a Democrat, candidates need 5% of registered Democrats to sign a petition. To be on the safe side, candidates typically seek to double or triple that number.

Hudson Democrats are supporting the process and gathering petition signatures for Didi Barrett for Assembly and Shaun Francis for Senate.
