Ballot Petition for 2017

Are You Ready for Better Choices on Your Ballot?

You can help us to give you sensible and honest candidates to vote for. Get our Ballot Petition signed by ten registered Arkansas voters. Then drop it in the mail to us at Neighbors of Arkansas, 10258 Thunder Road, Fayetteville, Arkansas 72701.

Our ballot drive begins September 22nd and ends December 20th.

Good government does not happen by accident. It is not something that will take care of itself while we are off doing other things. It only happens because honorable citizens take time out of their lives to take deliberate action to make it happen. What we have been doing, leaving it to these two D.C. based clubs funded by global money, has not been working and really there is no reason to expect that it should. We would greatly appreciate your help pitching in for the common good.

But what if I want to help more?

Now if all you can do is mail us one petition with 5 or ten signatures then you have done your part. Some of you may be willing and able to do more. Some of you may want to be a citizen-delegate and help pick and elect candidates for Neighbors in 2018. We strive to be a network, not a hierarchy. Here the people who do the most work have the most say. To be a delegate you have to send in a DELEGATE Statement. That is like an application letting us know you want to be a delegate. If you are unsure of some of your voter information you can look it up here…

Then as the petition drive goes on, send us a minimum of 100 valid voter petition signatures (it normally takes about 135 raw signatures to be sure you have 100 good ones). We ask that you send us all the petitions you have gotten signed on the 1st and 15th of each month. Delegates are to put their name and county on the back of each petition so that we can credit it to your “account”  when you mail it in. That way we will know how many votes you have earned at Convention (which we hope to do by next June, provided we get the required signatures).

If you have any questions, please get with the person who sent you this link or contact us. Thank you for your consideration. We hope it is the start of a fulfilling new adventure for both of us. Please send us your NEIGHBORS OF ARKANSAS DELEGATE Statement and first Ballot Petition as soon as you can.

Where do I go to gather petition signatures?

If you are just filling out one petition, then friends and family are the best route to go. If you want to collect a lot of them and be a delegate, then look for anyplace there is a large group of people who are not particularly locked in to whatever is going on. For example baseball and soccer fields. A lot of time the parents are there but they are mostly socializing. That’s a good place to get signatures.

Fairs and festivals are another place where people are walking around looking for something to do. Here is a link to help you find one near you.

If you are well-networked, you could probably get a lot of signatures by asking a friend if they would get one page of signatures from their friends and family. If they say “yes” then give them a single petition and a self-addressed stamped envelope. If you have 15 people in your life who will do that for you, you can get enough signatures to be a delegate in that manner alone.

Good luck, and charge!
