    Good for Johanna!

    As written, the post is a little unclear that the person soliciting signatures wanted to repeal the antidiscrimination ordinance.Report

    So someone just knocked on our door collecting signatures to have a public vote on an anti-discrimination ordinance our town recently passed, which says the city won’t discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or HIV status.


    Do you know the process? Here, it would be collecting signatures from registered voters equal to 10% of the number of voters participating in the last town-wide election; this is a small town, so usually that’s about 60 signatures, not that hard to do. But that does equal a lot of doors shut in your face, too. And there’s always the perverse signatures, those who disapprove and welcome the chance to say so at the ballot box.Report
