Sign up to volunteer! As the process continues, you will be contacted about next steps. In the meantime, share the social media pages and website to raise awareness for the cause. Once fundraising efforts are underway, we will ask all volunteers to help share that information.
The petition will not be ready to sign until the formal application has been submitted and found to be "legally sufficient" by elections officials and/or a judge. No online petitions will be used for this official effort. The only way a legally recognized petition can be signed is in person, in the county where you live.
We will need at least 100 application sponsors. They must have been registered to vote in the 2018 election and be currently registered to vote in, and be a resident of, Georgia. They will be the 100+ people officially calling for a recall of the Governor. This information will ultimately be publicly available.
Georgia law mandates we collect signatures equal to 15% of the number of people registered to vote in the 2018 election. That amounts to roughly 1,000,000 signatures.
We will have 90 days from the day the election superintendent issues the official recall petition forms to the petition sponsors (with possible exceptions for the legal proceedings).
Anyone who wishes to sign the petition must be a resident of Georgia, signing in the county in which they live, and be a registered voter.
If we collect the required number of signatures, a recall election is triggered and all registered voters in the state will have the opportunity to decide if the Governor should be removed from office.
Residents of Georgia, in their home county. No state employees, registration officers, or other persons authorized by law to register voters may collect signatures or circulate the petition.
Almost anywhere! However, signatures may not be collected anywhere that serves alcohol, so bars, restaurants, entertainment venues, and festivals are generally off-limits. Signatures may also not be collected within 150 feet of a polling place on election days.
The person circulating the petition may sign/fill out the petition for someone who is unable to, with their express permission. The signer must be in the presence of the person circulating the petition. The person circulating the petition will sign their own name next to the signer’s information to signify they were given permission to complete the petition on the signer’s behalf. The person circulating the petition may not falsify these signatures, under threat of misdemeanor prosecution.
Yes, there is an affidavit you can fill out to formally remove your name from the petition.
If we fail to collect the needed number of signatures and there are no concurrent recall efforts, the Governor would not be eligible for another recall for 6 months.
