- Signatures Delivered
- Circulators Deployed
We collected 4,000 signatures in 30 hours to help earn Kanye West and VP running mate Michelle Tidball a spot on the Illinois ballot. Most people in this industry wouldn’t have even attempted this, considering Kanye’s polarizing political and social stances, but we aimed for an average of 200 signatures per each of the 30 circulators deployed. Out of the total signatures collected, 3,500 were contracted for, with 3,100 delivered.
Medical Marijuana Dispensaries
200 circulators were deployed to cover 18 Michigan cities in just 10 days, collecting signatures to allow medical marijuana dispensaries in the following 18 city ordinances: Melvindale, Port Huron, Saline, South Gate, Romulus, Milan, Roseville, Pinckney, Claussen, Belleville, Kigo Harbor, Rockwood, Monroe, Pleasant Ridge, Royal Oak, Sylvan Lake, Wixham, Walled Lake. This case presented some difficulties, due to being contracted during the pandemic, and the significant ground needing to be covered, but we are proud to report a total of 21,500 signatures delivered.
Michigan Repeal of Emergency Powers of Governor Act Initiative
We deployed 200 circulators in Michigan to collect signatures to repeal the Emergency Powers of Governor Act, which allows a Michigan governor to govern by decree, without end, and without accountability (1945-era law). After spending about two months in Michigan, circulators were able to deliver a total of 300,000 signatures supporting the initiative to repeal the Emergency Powers of Governor Act.
Arizona Hospital Worker Minimum Wage and Insurance Regulations Initiative
On this case we deployed 110 circulators to collect signatures supporting a number of issues included in the Arizona Hospital Worker Minimum Wage and Insurance Regulations Initiative: increasing minimum wage for direct hospital workers, making changes to insurance policies, and requiring private hospitals to meet national standards regarding hospital-acquired infections, which includes empowering the Arizona Department of Health Services to fine hospitals that do not meet those standards. We delivered a total of 110,000 signatures supporting this initiative.
Authorize 16 Casino Licenses in 14 Counties Amendment
The Authorize 16 Casino Licenses in 14 Counties Amendment would require Arkansas Racing Commission to give casino licenses to 16 private companies in 14 counties. 173 circulators were deployed for about a month, during which they were able to deliver 110,000 signatures for this initiative. This case ran simultaneously with three other initiatives, and it was reported that 30% of voters in Arkansas were not willing to engage with circulators about this petition during the few short weeks signatures were being collected.
Privatization of the St. Louis Lambert International Airport
We deployed 25 circulators to collect signatures supporting the privatization of the St. Louis Lambert International Airport. This initiative ran simultaneously with three other Nebraska initiatives (Tax on Gaming at Racetracks Initiative, Nebraska Medical Marijuana Initiative, Authorizing Gaming at Racetracks Initiative) and the Arizona Hospital Workers initiative in 2020. We are proud to report 15,000 signatures delivered, considering the extreme difficulty of several simultaneous initiatives.
Top-Four Ranked-Choice Voting Initiative
173 circulators were deployed to collect signatures for an initiative that would help create a rank-based voting system in Arkansas for federal congressional and state elected offices. This system would ensure that the four individuals with the most votes would advance to the general elections. 160,000 signatures were needed to qualify in state, LTVD was contracted for 80,000 and delivered 90,000 signatures.
Redistricting Commission Amendment
In Arkansas, 173 circulators delivered 85,000 signatures supporting the Redistricting Commission Amendment. This amendment creates the Citizens’ Redistricting Committee, an independent committee for state legislation and congressional redistricting in Arkansas. 160,000 signatures are needed to qualify in state, LTVD was contracted for 85,000.
Tax on Gaming at Racetracks Initiative (Statutory)
LTVD was told, “There’s no way you’re going to pull this off. You’ll end up with nothing but a black eye.” But we did pull it off. 145 circulators helped deliver 180,000 signatures supporting the Tax on Gaming at Racetracks Initiative. This initiative enacts a tax on any games of chance operated at racetracks. 123,000 signatures were needed to qualify, which LTVD circulators and each signer helped surpass by over 50,000 signatures.
Nebraska Medical Marijuana Initiative
The Nebraska Medical Marijuana Initiative is a Constitutional amendment to legalize the use of marijuana for medical purposes. LTVD was told that this project was too ambitious, but our 145 circulators were able to deliver 105,000 signatures supporting this initiative.
