Those interested in helping to get Bernie Sanders on the presidential ballot here in Rhode Island should consider heading out to Ogie’s Trailer Park tomorrow night. The campaign will be handing out nomination papers for people to canvass in their own area to get signatures. Signatures can be from any registered Rhode island voter. To get Sanders on the ballot here in Rhode Island the campaign needs 3000-5000 signatures in two weeks. Nomination papers have to be returned by February 4 and 1000 validated signatures are needed.
Kevin Keefe, of Bernie’s Ballot Brigade, will provide a national perspective of the campaign as the primary season rapidly approaches.
This will be a chance meet fellow supporters from across the state and talk politics. There will be some free appetizers, but the campaign will also be soliciting donations and signing people up for the campaign.
The event is free but there is an official signup form available here.
