IF YOU WANT TO PRINT A PETITION TO HELP GATHER SIGNATURES, PLEASE FOLLOW THESE PRINTING INSTRUCTIONS CLOSELY!
- Use standard white office paper, 8-1/2×11 inches. If you use recycled paper, make sure it is a premium grade (20 lb. or better).
- Adobe Acrobat and/or your home computer may use the “fit” or “shrink to fit” setting as the print default. The petition MUST be printed at “actual size” (100%). Before printing, check your printer dialog box for “page sizing and handling” and de-select the shrink setting.
- The petition is intended to be printed double-sided, so check your printer settings to see how that’s done. You can also put the PDF file on a flash drive and take it to a copy shop for double-sided printing. (If you do, make sure you also ask the staff to print the document at actual size.) The double-sided petition is cheaper to produce and easier to handle, but it can be printed one-sided.
- The petition includes the full text of Fresno County Ordinance No. 14-001, which runs 28 pages. Each petition must include every page in the PDF, including the ordinance text and the signature lines. We apologize for the extra printing involved … but we didn’t write the ordinance.
- After the petition is printed, place three staples in a row along the top edge, leaving a one-inch margin of blank space. This keeps the petition “book” from falling apart during handling. Most household staplers can be used on the double-sided petitions. For the single-sided petitions, you’ll need a heavy-duty stapler with 1/4-inch staples, which can be borrowed for free at most copy centers.
- Don’t forget to print the circulator statement, too. This should be filled out and signed before you start gathering signatures; turn the form into the campaign along with your petition(s).
