Ever wonder how a person’s name appears on the ballot?

Have you ever gone to the polls to vote and wonder how a person’s name is listed on the ballot?  Any candidate listed on the ballot had to petition the voters of his/her party to be listed.  Grassroots workers and candidates are currently out gathering signatures to have names placed on the ballot.  Every candidate must follow this process from President of the United States to Supervisor of a township.  Candidates must then file their paperwork to be a candidate along with the petitions.

You may wonder how many signatures it takes to get your name placed on the ballot?
