TALLAHASSEE, Florida: Late last month a lawsuit, Striving Towards a New Daytona v City of Daytona Beach, was filed calling for the use of colored-code carbon paper petition forms so that voters can simultaneously sign three petitions. The new proposed method, said advocates, would save time. The proposal would still leave room for voters to sign petitions separately. The suit, no. 2009-33119, was filed in Volusia County Circuit Court on July 30, 2009. According to the group, Striving Towards a New Daytona, the lawsuit was filed because they feared the rejection of their three-page carbon paper petitions, which they circulated earlier this year. A similar idea was proposed in 2008.[1]
