In many states, the signatures of registered voters must be collected to place candidates or initiatives on the ballot. However, for candidates, filing fees are sometimes required or accepted in lieu of signatures. The requirements and laws governing signatures is complicated and varied from state-to-state. We have created two distinct pages detailing signature requirements in all 50 states, based on whether the signature are for candidates or ballot measures.
