Getting started collecting signatures for the Citizens Not Politicians amendment

Thanks for your interest in circulating petitions with Fair Districts (Common Cause Ohio and League of Women Voters and more) to get the Citizens Not Politicians amendment on the ballot. Here are the steps to get you started. 

First, sign up to volunteer. Once you are signed up we will forward your info to local leaders who will reach out with information about how to get booklets and get started. If you have already signed up, thank you! If you don’t hear from a local leader right away, email us at to let us know, or click on this map to find petition distribution points and contact information for local leaders near you.
