Michigan Draft Gore Locations & Times to Sign or Turn in Gore Petitions

Michigan voters who want to show their support for Al Gore for President can sign a petition and pick up Gore materials at many locations listed below. Circulators of the recent Gore Nomination petition are urged to turn in their petitions at one of these locations or to mail the petitions, even if only a few signatures, to:
Draft Gore 2008
P O Box 1300
East Lansing, MI 48826

The Michigan Draft Gore campaign is very heartened by the enthusiasm generated by our Gore Nomination Petition Drive to place his name on the Jan. 15 Presidential Primary ballot. In the last month our volunteer petitioners increased from 30 to 150!

We will be expanding our efforts to build support for Al Gore and turn out the votes for either the Jan. 15 Primary or the Feb. 9 Caucuses. The Michigan Democratic Party leadership must notify the Sec. of State by November 14 that Michigan Democrats will use either the Primary or the Caucuses to select their delegates to the Democratic National Convention in Denver in August 2008.

Local Draft Gore leaders will be at each location for supporters to sign petitions and to discuss petitioner questions and suggestions, and collect completed petitions.

The days, locations and times to sign the petition or turn in petitions are:
