National Voter Outreach is a political consulting firm specializing in organizing signature drives to qualify issues and candidates for the ballot. We have worked on over 450 separate, successful signature drives in 41 states and D.C., organizing the collection of more than 36 million signatures. This includes campaigns at all levels from small, local issues requiring a few hundred signatures, to statewide constitutional amendments requiring up to 1 million signatures.
Knowing the laws and regulations is of vital importance when working to get an issue in front of the voters. Whether there are distribution requirements, circulator residency requirements, or even specific compensation rules, you need to be aware of all of the factors if you are to succeed in making it to the ballot.
