Warrant Article Language

We have developed language adapted from NH Rebellion's We the People Pledge to Fight Big Money for use as a warrant article. 

We'd prefer that you use the language as is, but minor changes may be needed to make it acceptable to your town's clerk or election officials.

  • Remember that once you start taking signatures, NO CHANGES may be made on the language
