Thank you for your support to give Missourians the opportunity to legalize adult-use marijuana! If you would like to become a volunteer petitioner, these are the resources you need to get prepared and trained for the signature collection effort. Please follow the steps below to begin:

1. Get signed up as a volunteer: 

Navigate to the Volunteer page on the website, and complete the requested information. If you have already done this, skip this step.

 

2. Get trained

You can easily get the full online training and learn how to correctly gather signatures so you avoid simple mistakes. You should watch the training video embedded below or attend one of our upcoming Zoom trainings! Check our website or Facebook to see our scheduled virtual training or ask us how you can get trained in person! All petitioners who will be collecting signatures from the public must get a complete rundown of the rules before doing so. We recommend a combination of reading over the presentation slides and petition collection instructions, in addition to watching the training video below. It's always handy to keep a printed copy of the instructions around to reference! These guidance materials are linked below and include important campaign talking points you can use to explain the petition language when gathering signatures:

Guidance and Training Materials for all Petitioners:

Presentation slides of the petitioner training with campaign talking points

Petition Collection Instructions

A Sample Petition Signing page

The Complete Adult-Use Ballot Initiative text (do not print and use for signing purposes)

Volunteer FB Group

Once you are trained on the rules, please join the hundreds of other team members in our volunteer Facebook group! This is where we coordinate, plan, brainstorm, and share opportunities for volunteers to gather petition signatures to legalize marijuana in Missouri. 

 

3. Get blank petitions

After you've completed your training, it's time to get some blank petitions! You cannot print your own petitions and must use official Legal Missouri 2022 petitions. Petitions will always live at several hubs in the major metro areas across Missouri. We ask that you only take a max of 10 petitions per volunteer. You can find the petition hubs by clicking here. Or, you can see the hubs located below:

4. Get signatures:

Collecting signatures is a breeze once you have reviewed the training materials! Let your friends and family know you have the petition available to sign by posting on your social channels and attending our campaign petitioning events. Remember to join our Facebook group so you can coordinate with other volunteers directly. You can print off your own signage from our website and read over our FAQs to learn how to respond to common questions supporters have.

We have a few events coming up where you will have the opportunity to collect signatures and meet other volunteers. If you are interested in signing up to work any of the following events or have ideas for other events, please contact [email protected] to get squared away.

Remember that you have the right to collect signatures in public (i.e. tax-payer funded) spaces such as public sidewalks, public parks, and outside public buildings such as libraries, City Halls and Courthouses. To collect signatures on private property you will need to get permission.

 

5. Get notarized:

Once a petition has been filled out with its signatures, you will want to store completed petitions in a secure location until it can be signed in the presence of a notary. We have weekly and biweekly events where volunteers can turn in petitions to get notarized, the events page will always tell you the exact location and time of these events but generally, these events are held at:

Picassos Coffee House, Saint Charles on Sunday's from 3:30PM - 4:30PM

Opera House Coffee & Food Emporium, Kansas City every Sunday from 1:30PM - 3:30PM (Starting on 2/20/2022)

Schlafly Bottleworks, St. Louis every Sunday from 4:00PM - 6:00PM

This will be a great opportunity to meet other volunteers and get petitions notarized and turned in to the campaign team! Remember, if you are a notary you may not notarize your own petitions.
