Instructions for Signature Collectors for Marshall 4 WV
Items you should have before trekking out to gather signatures:
A can-do attitude and a smile on your face.
A good demeanor. Nobody wants to open a door to a grumpy gus.
Pens. Black or blue ink only. Plenty of them where if you happen to lose one you have extra available.
Clipboard. This can be used if they want to sign right there and have no clean flat surface to print.
Cheat sheet. This will have information on Marshall’s stance on various popular subjects and help you answer any possible questions they may have.
Business cards (if available).
Pamphlet (if available).
Be sure to look presentable. No ragged clothes, vulgar images/etc. Professional and polite appearance is what we are looking for, and our only opinion that needs to be known by who you are visiting is that you are 100% voting for Marshall Wilson in 2024.
When you get up to that first door, and you are READY to receive signatures…
Be sure if there is a video camera that you make sure that your face and torso can be seen, showing your clipboard with your paperwork.
Have your cheat sheet ready, since people will want to ask questions before putting down their signature, name, birthdate, and address.
When they open the door, politely introduce yourself and that you are canvassing the area to ask people to sign a petition for Marshall Wilson to be on the 2024 ballot for Governor.
If they close the door on your face, Leave a business card on their door. (DO NOT put anything in a mailbox!).
If they are interested, be sure to state that signing doesn’t mean you are committing to voting for Marshall, just that you would like to see him on the ballot for 2024 Governor.
Ask if they are registered to vote in WV.
If they are not, see if they are interested in doing so, mention Marshall’s ideals regarding Government control and point out that he wants to change that. If possible you can help them register to vote in WV. (ACT Party would be preferred, of course).
If they are, they are of age so the age doesn’t need to be asked. They still need to fill out their complete birthdate.
If they are interested in signing, be sure to ask them to print clearly and sign their name legibly in each section, signature, printed name, birthday, street address. Leave the last two boxes BLANK.
