If you have not received a petition and would like one, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please use the form on the right to sign-up for updates.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the campaign is mailing petitions via U.S. mail to registered voters in District 3, allowing everyone to safely sign and return their petition by mail.
In the next few days you will receive the official Recall Sawant Petition in the mail.
Can you please help us get enough signatures and help get every signature line on your petition completed and mail it back.
Those of us in District 3 know we have a great responsibility to make sure Sawant is removed from office before she does any further damage. This is where all Seattle citizens can help us succeed in the recall.
Please share our page with your fellow Seattleites. Let them know if they do not live in District 3, and cannot sign the petition or vote her out, they can still join by donating to the Recall effort.
Let’s show Sawant that Seattle supports the Recall without pandering to the rest of the world to drum up support to defend her illegal actions.
If you have not recently donated, we hope you will be able to donate today or tomorrow so we can reach our goal.
We must band together in unison and recruit more support to succeed in this RECALL!
Thank you for your continued support of the Recall Sawant Campaign.
Henry Bridger II
