TO GET MY NAME ON THE BALLOT, I, LYNNE TORGERSON, MUST GET 2000 SIGNATURES ON AND BETWEEN MAY 18, 2010 AND MAY 31, 2010 AND FILE ON JUNE 1, 2010.
THE LEGISLATURE CHANGED THE DATES, SO IT IS NO LONGER IN JULY, BUT IS NOW THE END OF THIS MONTH.
THE SCHEDULE IS AS FOLLOWS, ESSENTIALLY FROM 7:00 A.M. TO 8:00 P.M. AND ANYTIME IN BETWEEN THOSE HOURS:
1. TUESDAY: MAY 18, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
2. THURSDAY: MAY 20, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
3. FRIDAY: MAY 21, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
4. SUNDAY: MAY 23, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
5. MONDAY: MAY 24, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
6. TUESDAY: MAY 25, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
7. WEDNESDAY: MAY 26, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
8. THURSDAY: MAY 27, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
9. FRIDAY: MAY 28, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
10. SUNDAY: MAY 30, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES
11. MONDAY: MAY 31, 2010: 200 SIGNATURES (this is MEMORIAL DAY)
TUESDAY: JUNE 1, 2010: FILE PETITION
Then, my name is on the ballot in November 2010.
So, as you can see from the schedule above, there are essentially 11 days to get 200 signatures. I would like to get them with the first 10 days or earlier, so that there is
no panic the latter days.
Please note that to get 200 signatures in an 8 hour day, that means a person has to get 25 signatures per hour, which equals 1 signature every 2.4 minutes.
That means a steady constant stream of signatures for 8 hours every day. If 2 people are out for 8 hours per day, that equals about 1 signature per person every
5 minutes. If 3 people are out for 8 hours every day, that means each person needs to get a signature every 7 minutes. SO AS BECOMES APPARENT, TO
GET THESE SIGNATURES, I NEED HELP ALL DAY EVERY DAY. SO PLEASE CHECK YOUR SCHEDULES AND MAKE AS MUCH TIME AVAILABLE TO HELP AS YOU
CAN. YOU CAN MEET ME WHEREVER I AM GETTING SIGNATURES PRETTY MUCH ANY OF THESE DAYS.
For your information, we will be going all over Minneapolis and its suburbs, wherever we can find large groups of people around.
To qualify as a valid signature, the person must live the in district, be a citizen, and the signature must be gotten between May 18, 2010 and June 1, 2010.
Spread the word.
