Are there rules for circulators?

Yes. Circulators must ensure that all five columns are completed by each petition signer and they must witness each signature. Petition sheets may not be left unattended. A circulator or a petition signer cannot sign for another person. The circulator must complete the circulator’s certificate after collecting signatures. A certificate that is signed and dated prior to circulation is invalid.
