Thank you for your interest in the Constitution Party and we appreciate any help you can give, whether that be by donations or by helping us gather signatures on our Nominating papers above, or both.
If you are planning to help us gather signatures, here are a couple of items to make a note of.
Be sure to download and print the nomination paper instructions above.
Be sure to download the nomination paper above labeled 2016_cppa_presidential_nomination_paper.pdf
Be sure to print the nomination paper on both sides of one sheet, on legal size paper.
Be sure to enter the County name on line 2 at the top of page 1. Also it is important that all 38 valid signatures are from registered voters in the County listed on line 2 of page 1
Be sure that whomever the circulator of the petition is, fills in Section E on page 2. Print clearly then sign. This is to be done after the last signature of Elector block is completed (#38) on page 2.
It would also be a good idea to make copies before mailing.
Lastly we need to keep a weekly count of signatures so that we can track our progress. Please email your weekly numbers by Friday of each week to the Regional Chairman for the region of where the county of the circulator resides. If your county does not have a Regional Chairman please email your numbers to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once the completed nomination paper is notarized, they can be mailed to the address below no later than Monday July 25th.
