County receives reports about misleading signature gatherers

March 20, 2024

SOLANO COUNTY – The Solano County Registrar of Voters (ROV) is issuing this alert to inform voters of their rights. The County has received multiple reports of voters being misinformed by circulators collecting signatures either with incorrect information or for a petition to stop the East Solano Homes, Jobs and Clean Energy Initiative (also known as “California Forever”). No such initiative has been cleared for circulation. 

“Only one local initiative has been approved for circulation - and that petition is to authorize rezoning of 17,500 acres of Solano County agricultural land for a new community,” said Tim Flanagan, Chief Information Officer and Registrar of Voters.  “Anyone who signed a petition and wishes to withdraw their signature may do so by contacting our office.  The freedom to petition your government through the initiative process is central to our democracy.  We strongly encourage voters to carefully read petitions before signing them to ensure they are acting on their convictions instead of misinformation.”  

If voters feel they signed a petition in error, they may withdraw their signatures from a petition with a written request to the ROV.  Access the withdrawal of signature from petition form by clicking HERE.  Voters who wish to file a complaint regarding signature gathering tactics may do so with the Secretary of State or Solano County.
