Candidates for Congress must submit 1,000 petition signatures from voters in the district for their name to appear on the ballot. It appears Jeff Dove may be a few signatures short of that goal.
Dove acquired 1,254 signatures but slightly more than 20% of those signatures were invalid resulting in Dove being a few short of the 1,000 required. However, Dove’s signatures are being reviewed by his team, confident that he has met the threshold.
After review should Dove remain short of the required number of petition signatures the 11th District Republican Committee could vote to nominate him as their candidate and his name would appear on the ballot.
UPDATE: Jeff Dove has officially made the ballot. He will be the Republican candidate for Congress in the 11th district. Stay tuned, more details to come.
