  1. Be sure you understand ALL timelines.
    Understand all rules surrounding petition and signature gathering.
    Express to ALL signature gatherers (circulators) importance of understanding rules, laws and responsibilities.

    This becomes the absolute hardest part of the drive.
    Make certain you have your entire network set up and ready to go long before the first signature is received. We have seen many get ahead of themselves at this stage and believe it will be easy. I hope it is, however you must plan for unforeseen as well as known hurdles. And guaranteed, with this administration, there will be hurdles.

    Good luck
