How to Host a Signing Party


Signing Parties are a great way to introduce your family, friends, neighbors, and co-workers to the topic of gerrymandering and why fixing the process is so important to you. These informal gatherings will help us share VNP’s mission with Michiganders who need to hear our message from someone they know and trust - YOU!


In order to get our proposal to end gerrymandering on the ballot in 2018, we must collect 315,654 valid signatures. Signing Parties are one part of our grassroots efforts to collect this large number of signatures from across the state. As a VNP volunteer, you have the opportunity to collect signatures from the comfort of your own home or at a private location. A Signing Party is also an opportunity to share other valuable information with your friends and neighbors, such as:

> An overview of what gerrymandering is and how it hurts us as voters and leads to an ineffective and inattentive government,

> How VNP’s proposed Independent Citizens Redistricting Commission will remove the partisan bias and influence that is corrupting the redistricting process,

> How your friends and neighbors can get more involved, through volunteering or contributing to the campaign.


VNP will provide you with the necessary tools to host a successful party, including a volunteer circulator if one is available in your area.


If you are interested in hosting a party, please sign up here. After you sign up, a VNP Party Coordinator will confirm the details of your party and will provide you with further information and instructions.
