Sittenfeld re-collects signatures after petition error

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Cincinnati City Council member P.G. Sittenfeld announced he has collected enough valid signatures for the November ballot after the wrong date was previously written on some of his signature petitions for re-election.

Last week, Sittenfeld said his campaign previously turned in more than 1,000 signatures of Cincinnati voters to the Hamilton County Board of Elections (BoE) in support of putting his name on the November ballot. Of those signatures, 700 were validated while only 500 are needed.

However, he said the person circulating the signature petitions wrote the wrong date on some of them. Realizing this error, that person crossed out the first date and filled in the appropriate date.

Sittenfeld said they were actually directed to do so by a BoE employee.

The signatures were then called into question because the dates were crossed out and corrected. The BoE board members make the ultimate decision on their validity.

As a result, Sittenfeld started from scratch and re-collected the needed signatures to ensure his name on the November 5th ballot. On Wednesday, he announced his campaign had collected 1,500 signatures in four day and more than enough had been validated by the BoE.

Sittenfeld was elected to Cincinnati City Council in 2011. He is a native of Cincinnati and is also the youngest person ever elected to Cincinnati City Council.
