Path to the ballot
- Lance Olson submitted a letter requesting a title and summary on December 11, 2013.
- A title and summary were issued by the Attorney General of California's office on February 10, 2014.
- 504,760 valid signatures were required for qualification purposes.
- Supporters had until July 10, 2014, to collect and submit the required number of signatures, as petition circulators are given 150 days to circulate petitions.
- The Secretary of State’s suggested signature filing deadline for the November 4, 2014, ballot was April 18, 2014. This means that if supporters had submitted enough valid signatures by July 10 but after April 18, the measure could have been pushed back as far as the next statewide general election, in November 2016.
- The Secretary of State's office said the measure did not qualify for the ballot on July 24, 2014.
