Sun Prairie Star: Candidates get creative in collecting nomination signatures amid social distancing

Sun Prairie Star: Candidates get creative in collecting nomination signatures amid social distancing. “In normal circumstances, candidates would spend the time between April 15 to June 1 going door to door or showing up at festivals, farmer’s markets or the local library to collect enough signatures. The signature requirements range from a minimum of 200 for the Assembly to a minimum of 400 for the state Senate to a minimum of 1,000 for congressional candidates. The highest threshold is a minimum of 2,000 signatures for statewide office. But social distancing requirements and Gov. Tony Evers’ stay-at-home order ruled out things like going door to door.”
