Today--Tuesday, December 29--is the first day of a thirty-day period during which petitions can be signed to get candidates' names on the ballot for the Democratic primary in New York, which takes place on April 19, 2016. Starting today, there is an effort afoot to get Bernie Sanders' name on the ballot. Signing the petition does not commit you to vote for Sanders; it's just part of the process required to get his name on the ballot.
From noon until 6 p.m., registered Democrats can go to Peter Jung Fine Art, 512 Warren Street, to sign the petition for Sanders. At 6:30 p.m., there will be a gathering of Sanders supporters at Wunderbar, 744 Warren Street. You can join the group for food and music and sign the petition, too, of you choose.
If today's opportunities don't work for you, contact Peter Jung to make other arrangements. You have until January 29 to sign the petition.
