Paid blocker

From Ballotpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A paid blocker is someone who is paid by the opponents of an initiative's petition drive, as part of a petition blocking campaign to stand in the vicinity of a petition circulator.

When the circulator is interacting with members of the public to solicit their signatures, the blocker is paid to interfere with that process by interrupting the discussion between the circulator and the voter.
