Wouldn't it make more sense to cancel the signature on both petitions?
Otherwise, I could see a candidate coming back on us for having to decide
which signature to accept.

 

I always tell people to get more than 30 signatures just for that reason.

Hi Kim,

 

If there is only 1 position to be filled, then a person can only sign 1
candidate's petition.   The law does not say how to handle it, but we
suggest that you count the signature on the first petition received, and not
on the second petition.

 

Best, Kathy

How do you handle a person signing two petitions for the same seat? Is there
a written law on this?

Do you take the signature on first petition handed in or void on all
petitions signed?

 

Happy New Year all!
