1. None of the petition signatures you collect will be validated unless you as the circulator swear an oath before a notary public to the affidavit which should be printed on the back of each page. Read carefully the affidavit and the instructions on the back of the petition before you collect your first signature. Every word there has legal significance, and understanding what they mean translates directly into fewer signatures invalidated after we file, and protection from legal liability for you as the circulator.
2. The ‘disinterested notary rule’ means that your notary public can neither sign nor circulate our petition. It is up to you to qualify each notary you use to ensure that using them won’t cost you the invalidation of every signature on the front of each sheet of an affidavit they have notarized.
3. People who sign the petition must be registered voters in the state of Georgia, and their name on the petition will be used to match them to their voter registration record; before their voter registration card is pulled by election workers in their county to match against the signature you collect.
4. Since the petition we file will be broken up by county and sent to the county of registration for each page, it is important to use a distinct page for each county. Each petition page is only valid for people in one county. You need a different sheet for each county where you gather signatures, and everyone who signs must be registered in that specific county. In case you missed it, and just to be clear, ‘one county per page’, please.
