Parental notification initiative sponsors submit signatures in Alaska
JUNEAU, Alaska: Sponsors of the proposed Personhood of Unborn Children Act turned in signatures to the Alaska Division of Elections the day of the deadline, January 19, 2010, claiming to have obtained enough signatures to place the measure on the November ballot. The campaign, Alaskans for Parental Rights, stated that they had submitted approximately 47,000 signatures, greatly surpassing the approximately required 32,000 signatures from 36 of the state's districts.
All Alaskan initiatives are indirect initiated state statutes, as per state law. This means that if the Division of Elections’ office deems the signatures valid, the next step would be a review from the Legislature before it could be sent to the ballot.
