Each parish and Catholic school received a bulk mailing of the official CEI Petition Page. (Click here for the official petition page.) The official petition page is an 8 1/2 x 11, one-page, two-sided document. The Secretary of State’s Office will only accept Petition Pages that replicate the original Petition Page.
Hence, copied petition pages that leave the backside of the petition page blank (so it does not include the text of the proposed constitutional amendment) will be invalid. Petition Pages copied on legal size paper also will be declared invalid. Use the petition pages we sent you, or be very careful to copy the Petition Page so that it is in the exact form as the original.
If you send the MCC invalid Petition Pages, we will send them back to you so your parish or school can try again to gather valid voter signatures. If you have any doubts or questions, call us at (800) 456-1679 or email us before you begin to gather signatures.
