Volunteers are generally ALWAYS the most important part of any successful initiative. They are the most visible representatives of our cause that are on the streets and in neighborhoods every day in direct contact with prospective supporters of our petition initiative. While each and every volunteer may have their own opinion regarding the matter that we are seeking to have put to the voters through our petition drive - they all understand the importance of maintaing a neutral position when acquiring signatures on petitions - and consider each and every voter's right to also have their own respective opinions on the issue. The SOLE purpose of the circulation of petitions for signatures is to have the item placed onto the ballot of the next General Municipal Election - and NOT to establish how a person may vote on election day. That is a very private matter - and should only be shared or discussed openly - when initiated by the petition signer voluntarily.
It is very important that these volunteers are both curteous and appreciative of each and every prospective supporter's views on the issue we are representing. All volunteers are aware of how petitions must be properly completed by registered voters so they can be accurately verified and counted by the Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections. In the event the petitions are not properly completed by registered voters in the presence of our volunteers - they WILL NOT COUNT in the required total number of signatures we must obtain - in order to qualify this referendum item to be placed on the ballot of the next Municipal Election. Needless to say - our volunteers play a VERY important role in the process!
