This bill requires any person signing a single-signature petition sheet to have personally printed it, or request a separate person to print it, may sign the signature sheet.
Personal Choice and Responsibility
Unrealistic requirement for an electronic signature sheet to be printed by the person who signs it or request a separate person to print it out for them. Seniors don’t always have printers but to require a prior request will not be provable. This will make it harder to gather signatures on the spot with single sheets and has the effect of preventing free speech.
This is an overreach of government. The requirement would be difficult to enforce and unnecessarily makes it harder for citizens to petition.
