Only authorized personnel (AP) coordinate with other volunteers, such as community members and petition circulators to gather the signed petition forms. Authorized personnel count the number of forms and tally the number of signatures on each form, and complete a written report of those totals. They then submit the petition forms to their County Registrar’s office. The Registrar will provide the AP with a time and date stamped receipt. The AP then forwards the tally report and receipt to headquarters. Only approved personnel, who possess a signed authorization letter from the proponent may perform these functions.
To become Authorized,
- The applicant will be sent a Non-Disclosure Form, it will need to be signed, then returned to the proponent.
- Once the applicant is approved the proponent will send a Signed Authorization Letter.
- Minimum Once a Month Responsible for Delivery of Petitions to County Recorder
- AP MUST Count the total number of Petitions/Forms (commonly referred to as Sections by the County Recorder).
- AP MUST count the total number of signatures being submitted to the County Records.
- Any petitions which belong in another county shall be forwarded to the appropriate (AP) for that county or to headquarters.
- Items to take with you when you submit petitions to the registrar:
- All signed Petitions
- Letter of Authorization from Orrin Heatlie / CPC
- Two blank petition forms
- Make sure you take a picture of post-it or “cover sheet” so you have record of what you submit.
- Get signed and dated receipt from County Recorder
- Send monthly Tally Report along with original receipt to:
California Patriots Coalition
P.O. Box 417030
Sacramento, CA 95841
- Keep a copy for yourself or snap a picture for your records.
NOTE: AS the AP for your county, you will be sent petitions from other county APs and also from our CPC Office for your specific county to submit along with the petitions you and your volunteers collect.
Suggested Courtesy to make easier for County Recorder, BUT Not Required:
- Separate Petitions according to number of signatures on each petition page
- For Example: If 10 spaces on petition, but only 8 on petition, put in stack with other petitions that have 8 signatures because of blanks or because name/sig had to be crossed out.
- Some find it easier to submit in groups of 25 to 50 petitions and separate with a post-it, but not required.
HELPFUL HINT: If you have a large quantity to count, first separate the forms into categories, based on the number of signatures on each form. You can then place portions of the stack into a common printer and click print 100, you simply multiply the number of sheets counted to the number of signatures. (Make sure there is NO other documents on the printing surface.) This will effectively turn your printer into a counting machine and save you time.
