S. Marshall Wilson for West Virginia Governor
Signature Collection Procedures
Thank you, for offering to invest your time, effort, and capabilities into the signature campaign to place S. Marshall Wilson on the 2024 ballot as the Constitution Party Candidate for Governor of West Virginia. This campaign is not about Marshall; it is about the following message:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed… (The Continental Congress 1776)”
Our purpose is to establish Constitutional governance in West Virginia, and we intend to do so by hiring a Chief Executive of the state government (a Governor) who will uphold these principles and hold up the government to these principles.
Marshall has upheld the Principles of Liberty as a Soldier, a Commander in combat, a missionary in the jungle, a father of nine, and a two-term West Virginia Delegate. He will continue to uphold the principles of Liberty for the remainder of his life to ensure that his kids can raise their kids in a free, just, prosperous and secure land.
In West Virginia, a candidate who is not affiliated with a political party that has ballot access must petition to be placed on the general election ballot. The petition must be signed by a specific number of registered West Virginia voters. Any registered West Virginia voter of any affiliation may sign the petition. To be considered valid, the voter’s signature must appear on a signature sheet designated for the county in which the voter is registered to vote. (If you collect signatures at an event which is attended by voters from various counties, you will need to provide signature sheets designated for each county and ensure that the voters sign on the appropriate signature sheet.) The signature may be illegible but must be recognizable as the voter’s standard signature. The voter’s handwritten information (printed name, address, and date of birth) on the signature sheet must be clearly legible. Campaign volunteers may offer to assist voters by printing their information on the signature sheet but the volunteer may not sign for the voter. The WV Secretary of State will not count any signatures that do not meet the above requirements.
Our target is to collect 16,000 valid signatures of registered West Virginia voters to place the name “S. Marshall Wilson” on the 2024 general election ballot as the candidate for Governor from the Constitution Party.
Signing this petition indicates only that the voter who signs is willing to see Marshall’s name placed on the ballot.
Please ensure that each signature collection volunteer has a clear hard copy of the Authorized Credentials for each county for which you collect signatures and that it is readily available for display to any voter or official who requests it.
To determine how and where to return completed signature sheets, please contact the Signature Campaign Coordinator, Catherine Moles, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Again, thank you, and, as Marshall says, “Stand fast. We will meet you on the High Ground.”
