Volunteer Now!

Volunteers!  We need YOU to become a volunteer!
Sign up now to be a Captain or a Circulator!

This endeavor, we cannot stress enough, is a grassroots effort.  We understand that many of you contribute time and money to various lobbying groups to do your activism for you. Groups such as RMGO, NRA, AFL-CIO, and Greenpeace spend in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to get things on the ballot just one time.

We aren’t that type of group.  We aren’t lobbyists, we aren’t venture capitalists, we aren’t politicians.

We are citizens, we are you.  None of us should sit idly by if all we need to do is stand up and declare our rights to our elected representatives.

A plan is coming together to train a well regulated team of volunteers armed individually with pens and paper to collect the signatures of registered voters.  You can sign up to collect as few as 50 signatures over 2 months, or commit to collect 50 signatures a week.  It’s an easy and flexible commitment to make.  Read our two volunteer job descriptions below and then send us an email to tell us how you’d like to contribute your time and efforts.

CIRCULATORS

Volunteer Circulators have much more flexibility than volunteer Captains.  Circulators are responsible for engaging the public in public spaces or by canvassing door-to-door in order to get registered voters to sign the initiative petition.

Volunteer Circulators should have the following qualities

  • Detail oriented
    • Ensure complete signature lines
    • Follow state of Colorado rules for petitioning
  • Great interpersonal skills
    • Friendly, approachable, presentable
  • Handle adversity
    • Disengage from critics

    • Leave confrontations
  • Petition in pairs

  • Full Legal Name
  • Full Residential Address
    (Where you live must be the same as where you are registered to vote)
  • Date of Birth

We will match you with a volunteer Captain in your area, or as close to you as possible.

    My name is Joe Burke and I am in charge of the Teller County GOP Lincoln Day Picnic that is taking place this weekend this weekend. I was also a Teller County Delegate to the 2012 RNC in Tampa Fl. last August. If you can email me an application immediately I can probably get you around a hundred VALID signatures including various State Senators, Congressmen, as well as rank-and-file Repiblican voters however I need it NOW as the picnic is this Saturdat the 24TH.

    • Hi Joseph. We apologize we won’t be able to get you set up for the Teller County GOP Lincoln Day picnic tomorrow. We would still love to get our petitions in your hands for the near future. Our statewide ballot petitions cannot be emailed or signed online. They have been printed professionally and approved by the Secretary of State’s office.

      We’ll put you in touch with our Colorado Springs captain.

  7. You guys need petitions at Denver Guns and Ammo (Bowles and Wadsworth), and Green Mountain Guns (Wadsworth and Hampden). I would like to help circulate petitions as well.

  8. Cabela’s opened 2 stores in the state. I bet they would host signing events there.

  9. I have two facebook networks (small ones) that now have your website, facebook, and signing location information.

    My name is Mike Hess. I live and vote in Custer County. I run a Tea Party (Southern Colorado Patriots Club) and have just started a new weekly conservative newspaper with 3 other patriots. We would be glad to have concerned citizens from all around here come to our paper’s office and sign this petition. Need to discuss timelines and details. I believe we could get 200+ signautes easy.
