The initiative process to amend the charter is not an easy one. It requires the submission of petitions signed by at least 7% of the qualified electors from each commission district or about 16,311 verified petitions in total. This will require about 19,000 to 20,000 unverified petitions.

Please consider volunteering to help place these important initiatives on the ballot in November. Email for information on how you can help.
