We need over 3,000 volunteers across the state to collect signatures from May to November of 2017. You will be trained and assigned to a local captain who will coordinate circulation of petitions in your area. No experience is required! You just need a few hours a week, comfortable shoes, a positive attitude, and a commitment to fair representation for all voters of Michigan.
Lead a Circulation Team
Approximately 100 captains and about ten regional directors will coordinate the circulation process and will later transition to campaign canvassing. Each captain will coordinate a team of ~30 circulators. Territories will vary depending on population. If you are organized, responsible, and comfortable dealing with a team of volunteers, this is the perfect way to contribute. Captain and Director roles are volunteer only, and are not paid at this time.
