Who can sign my nomination paper?

Any registered voter in the jurisdiction, the City of Avalon, may sign a nomination paper. This includes the candidate and/or the circulator. If the circulator is different than the candidate, the circulator must also be a registered voter of the jurisdiction. Each seat on the governing board is a separate office. A voter may sign the number of nomination papers as there are seats available. A nomination paper must contain at least 20, but not more than 30 nominations. A minimum of 20 must be verified for your nomination to be valid.
