We need your help to get Kathy Hinkfuss on the ballot!
In order to appear on the ballot in August and November elections, Kathy needs to have between 200 and 400 signatures on her nomination papers, however, the COVID-19 epidemic has made this much more difficult to obtain in person.
Starting April 15th, if you live in the 4th district, are at least 18 years old, and are eligible to vote in November, please print and sign our nomination petition! We MUST collect 200-400 signatures by June 1st in order to be on the ballot in November!
How can you help? It will take just a minute!
Step 1: Print this form
Step 2: Fill it out and ask every eligible person in your household to sign it too. A few key things to know:
YOU are an “elector” and so is everyone in your house who is eligible to sign it.
AFTER all voters in your household have signed, you fill out the bottom part -- “Certification of Circulator” -- and lastly, date the form. The date at the bottom can not be earlier than any of the dates at the top.
Step 3: Mail the petition to:
Friends of Kathy Hinkfuss
525 Antelope Trail
Green Bay WI 54313
If you do not have a printer, email your address to firstname.lastname@example.org or text it to 920-249-5481 and we will happily send you a nomination form AND a postage-paid envelope!
Step 4: Forward this page to all your friends and neighbors, post a picture of you and your petition on social media, and help us spread the word!
While you are thinking about voting, you might consider applying for your absentee ballot NOW. The primary election is August 11th and the general election is November 3rd. We won’t know the status of COVID-19 on either date, and we don’t want a repeat of April’s election! Register absentee today!
Why do you need to do this?
The Wisconsin Election Commission requires all candidates for public office to collect signatures from voters in order to be listed on the ballot.
Can anyone sign?
You must be 18 or older, a resident of the 4th Assembly District, and eligible to vote. If someone does not meet those requirements and signs the form, their signature does not count towards our 200-400 total. All the other signatures on the form still count.
When do you need to have to have all your signatures collected?
We must have enough signatures collected by June 1st in order to appear on the ballot.
Why can’t you just use digital signatures?
The signatures must be original, and only the Wisconsin legislature can change the law.

What is a “circulator?”
A circulator is usually the person who carries the clipboard around collecting signatures. In this case, the circulator is you. Because of these special COVID-19 circumstances, anyone can be a circulator in his or her own home. It just means the person who is in charge of the ballot petition -- that piece of paper that you are signing -- you are literally “circulating” the petition to any other voters in your household.
What is a “partisan office?”
A partisan office means a candidate is running with an affiliated political party, such as Republican or Democrat. Kathy is running as a Democrat.
What is a “qualified elector?”
A person who is eligible to vote for a candidate running for office.

What if I have already signed another candidate’s petition?

Is this petition for the primary election or the general election?
It is for both elections, the primary election on August 11th and the general election on November 3rd.
We so appreciate your help in getting Kathy on the ballot!
