Path to the ballot

Note: April 18, 2014 is the deadline for initiative and referendum proponents to submit collected signatures to county election officials, as suggested by the California Secretary of State.[1] The deadline, however, has operated in the past as a date of assured consideration. Signatures for initiatives, such as 2012's Proposition 30 and Proposition 31, have been submitted upwards of eighteen days after the deadline and still qualified for the general election ballot for that year. Proponents of initiatives who submit their signatures after the April 18 deadline for 2014, but by their initiative's petition circulation deadline, and have their initiative qualified, will have their initiative placed on the 2016 ballot.
  • Brilliant Manyere submitted a letter requesting a title and summary on November 13, 2013.
  • A title and summary were issued by the Attorney General of California's office on January 6, 2014.
  • 807,615 valid signatures are required for qualification purposes.
  • Supporters have until June 5, 2014 to collect the required signatures. Filing sufficient signatures by that date would not allow the initiative to compete on the November 4, 2014 ballot.
  • The Secretary of State’s suggested signature filing deadline for the November 4, 2014 ballot is April 18, 2014.
