As deadline arrives, Nebraska sees no initiative signatures filed
LINCOLN, Nebraska: The deadline for initiative organizers in the state of Nebraska to turn in signatures has passed, but no signatures were filed, according to the Nebraska Secretary of State's office. Two measures that had hope of making the ballot on November 2, 2010 included one measure that would have prohibited the annexation of a city or village in the state of Nebraska unless it was approved by a majority vote of registered voters of that city. The other measure would have provided procedures for petition and election for detachment and reestablishment of an annexed city or village.
A third initiative that was proposed fell short of signatures a few days before the deadline. The measure would have allowed residents in the state to recall an official by obtaining at least 30 percent as many signatures as the number of votes cast for that particular local or state official in the previous election. The signature requirements for a proposed constitutional amendment was approximately 117,000 and approximately 80,992 for a proposed state statute.
