Bateson for Congress campaign submits signatures to elections office
The campaign for 4th Congressional District hopeful Regina Bateson submitted more than 2,000 voter signatures to place her name on the June 5 primary ballot.
Residents from 10 different California counties — every county in the district — signed a petition endorsing Bateson, the campaign said in a Feb. 8 statement.
Candidates can pay a fee to get themselves on the ballot. For people running for Congress, the fee is 1 percent of a House member’s salary, which is nearly $1,800. Or instead, candidates can file the valid signatures of at least 2,000 registered voters of the district.
“I’m so proud of all the dedicated volunteers who made this happen,” said Bateson in a statement. “Our successful signature drive reflects the fact that we have the strongest grassroots network in the district. Republicans and Democrats alike are stepping up and demanding better.”
