Fair Districts, Fair Elections: Join LWV Kent to Collect Signatures for Congressional Redistricting Issue

Training and Signature Collection Dates in Kent Area

Signature Collection Training and Dates

We are one step closer to putting a proposed constitutional amendment before the voters. Petitions are now available and we need your help getting the necessary signatures to put congressional redistricting reform before the voters.

Because every signature counts and more than 300,000 valid signatures are required to place this issue on the ballot, the Fair Districts coalition is requiring all those who circulate petitions to receive training in doing so.

We are hosting two (1-hour) training sessions.

  • The first is June 21 at 6:30 pm at the KSU Women's Center. This is the Williamson House, formerly the Alumni House, formerly the president's house.
  • The second training will be held on June 26 at 6:30 pm at the Kent Free Library.
  • No need to RSVP, just show up!

Email Iris Meltzer with questions.

You will be able to pick up petitions for circulation after the training.


Our League will be collecting signatures for the Fair Districts = Fair Elections issue at Haymaker Farmers Market throughout the summer and fall. Ideally, each of our Saturdays will be staffed by two League members.

Because the rules and guidance for collecting signatures for this position are stringent, we are urging everyone to be trained.

If you are interested in working one of the Saturdays (below), please plan on attending a training (dates listed above).

If you want to sign up for one (or more) of the dates, but can't make one of the training sessions, please let Iris Meltzer know at and she will work with your schedule.

Thanks so much!
