(DENVER) - Today Secretary of State Scott Gessler announced that the proposed ballot measure concerning "Use and Regulation of Marijuana" will require a line-by-line review of signatures.

Petitions for proposed initiative #30 were submitted to the Secretary of State’s office on January 4. The office immediately began verifying a random sample of the signatures as set forth in state statute. Section 1-40-116(4), C.R.S., requires the verification of each signature filed if the random sample shows the number of valid signatures falls between 90 percent and 110 percent of the signatures needed.

Random Sample Summary:

  • Total number of qualified signatures submitted: 163,598
  • 5% of qualified signatures submitted (random sample): 8,180
  • Total number of entries accepted (valid) from random sample: 4,436
  • Total number of entries rejected (invalid) from random sample: 3,744
  • Number of projected valid signatures from random sample: 88,719
  • Total number of accepted entries necessary for placement on ballot: 86,105
  • Percentage of presumed valid signatures: 103.04%

Because the 103 percent projection falls between the 90 and 110 percent described in statute, the Secretary of State’s office has notified the proponents the petition will require a line-by-line review. The office has until February 3 to complete the review.
