Are you ballot ready?

Thinking about creating conservation funding at the ballot box to protect your drinking water, forestlands, natural areas or trails?

Here are 5 fast questions our friends at the Trust for Public Land recommend to assess your ballot readiness:

  1. Do you have the elected leadership you need?
  2. Is there a demonstrated public need for conservation funding?
  3. Do you have an on-the-ground coalition of citizens & groups to execute your campaign?
  4. What is the best jurisdiction for your ballot measure; is it the city, the county, or special district?
  5. Do you know all the possible funding options to poll; bonds, or sales tax, or something else?
