PETITION FORMS: Bring extras. You'll be glad you did: people may want to take some so they can help, so bring lots of them. Click here to find out Where To Get Petition Forms. Click here if you can do two-sided printing and want to Print Your Own.
Using multiple clipboards is just one way to organize your petitions. Whatever helps you keep track of your petition forms, both the ones you've started and the blanks ones, is fine.
Psst! Wanna make your own instead of buying clipboards? Use cutting boards instead: one to hold the petition in place and (optionally) another to use as protection from rain (see below for more ways to protect your signatures). Stiff cardboard also works great!
Covers to protect the petition forms from rain: Handy ideas are large plastic food storage bags that “zip” or zip bags that mattresses and sheets come in.
A small piece of paper clipped to your clipboard to use to get pens to work, because we CAN NOT make any marks in the margins of these petition forms.
Extra pens (blue or black only)
A pad of paper, to collect email addresses and for scribbling to get pens working.
Your list of towns/cities you've started petition forms for.
Yellow stickie notes to help you organize your forms and keep track of your “numbers.”
Reminder: Do NOT use tape or mark right on the forms. Forms with extraneous marks will be discarded by the state.
Clips to organize your papers, and something to organize sheets for different towns (extra clipboards, an accordion file, or a milk crate) may be helpful.
A cell phone, charged, and a list of phone numbers: 978 808 7173 (Terra), and whoever you may be coordinating with in your region.
Bring some handouts for the public.
