Want Bernie Sanders On The Delaware Primary Election Ballot? This Is How To Do It!

2016 Presidential Election, Bernie Sanders

A gentleman by the name of Floyd McDowell is a huge Bernie Sanders fan.  He wants him on the primary ballot so all registered Democrats in Delaware have the opportunity to vote for him should they choose.  Here is the message from Mr. McDowell:

This message is a request for the assistance of all who are registered to vote as Democrats in the Delaware 2016 primary and general elections. As one helping to obtain the needed signatures from these registered Democrats to ensure that Senator Bernie Sanders is on our 2016 primary election ballot in our state. It would be a national shame for him or any other national candidate for President not to be on our Delaware ballot.

Signing a petition merely means the person signing agrees that Senator Sanders should be on our 2016  Delaware ballot. Here’s what we ask of registered Democrats receiving this message. If you or others contact me at (302) 832-2799 or via email at flydmcdwll@verizon.net and ask for a petition sheet (or more),  I will quickly mail one or more to you if you give me your name and postal address. Each petition sheet has space for ten signatures. I will include a stamped envelope addressed to me so the sheets can be returned. Even if you only give your signature and those of family members and friends, this will help our signature count. I will need to receive these mailed signatures by Friday, January 15th so I can get them to Dr. Philip Pollner of Newark who is leading this important project. He will then get all of these signatures notarized as required.
If anyone simply asked me to sign and get signatures to make sure candidates Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley were on our Delaware 2016 ballot, I would gladly help as our Delaware citizens need to have all national candidates for President on our state’s ballot as they decide who they want as our nation’s leader in the forthcoming election. One of the key reasons I fought in WWII and the Korean Conflict as a young enlisted man and officer, along with millions of others.
For those who have requested petition sheets to obtain signatures, I thank you on behalf of our movement to do what is right and just in this important civic responsibility area of our collective lives.
Editor’s Note: This is not an official endorsement for Bernie Sanders.  This is just an attempt to get him on the primary ballot.  This blog has not officially endorsed their candidate for United States of America President at this point in time.

  1.  Thanks, Kevin. By the way, Sanders has long opposed superimposed high stakes testing programs. Attaching an artic


  2. To the people who want to help get Sanders on our DE DEM Pres. Primary Ballot in April:

    You can also stop by the PDD meeting this Wednesday night and sign a petition there (7PM at 19 E. Commons Boulevard, 2nd Fl., New Castle) via Catherine Ciferni.

    Be sure to understand that all petitions must be signed by residents of Delaware who are registered Democrats.

    Each of the petition sheets must be notarized under witness of the person who collected the petition signatures. You can’t collect signatures and send a petition in to the campaign without first having that petition sheet notarized.

    Amy Roe is a Delaware Notary and has offered to make appointments with petition-holders to get their petitions notarized. Her email is amywroe@gmail.com

    Petition circulators do not have to be a member of the party or a Delaware resident. Moreover, petition signers may sign petitions for multiple candidates. In addition, the notary who verifies the petitions isn’t required to be a Delaware notary.
    Notarized petitions can be submitted as suggested in this post (to Phillip Pollner) and also may be submitted directly to the Bernie Sanders’ campaign attorney in Georgetown.
