INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUBMITTING AN E-PETITION
Oregon law allows a voter to download and print a special single-signer initiative petition, fill out and sign the petition, and then mail it to the chief petitioner of the measure. This special petition is called an “E-Petition.”
There are a few rules you have to follow in order for your signature on an E-Petition to be counted by the Secretary of State:
- Print the E-Petition on 8.5 x 11 inch white paper only.
- Using a pen, sign your full name as you did when you registered to vote. Only registered voters can sign the petition. If you don’t know if you are a registered voter, you can check online at www.oregonvotes.org or contact your county elections office. You can also register to vote online at the Secretary of State’s “Register to Vote” page. You must be registered to vote before you can sign a petition.
- Fill in the date you signed the petition, your printed name, and residence address where you are registered to vote in the spaces provided.
- You can only sign for yourself, it’s not allowed to sign for another voter (not even your spouse, child, or barista).
- Leave the Sheet Number field (located in the lower right-hand corner) blank. This must be filled out by the campaign when we receive it.
- Once signed, please mail your completed copy of the E-Petition to Oregon Right to Know:
Oregon Right to Know
PO Box 12628
Portland, OR 97212
Once we receive your E-Petition, it will be processed by Oregon Right to Know and submitted to the Secretary of State.
Oregon Right to Know is the petition committee dedicated to qualifying the Oregon Right to Know GMO Labeling Initiative for the November 2014 ballot. This is not a substitute for the Secretary of State’s training that all paid signature gatherers must complete and all volunteer gatherers are welcome to review. If there are any conflicts, you should follow the Secretary of State training.
