BOISE, Idaho: Although the numbers are unofficial, and supporters of the three Idaho education reform referenda have one more hurdle, all signs are pointing to a voters' decision in 2012. All three measures appear to have enough signatures to be placed on the ballot, as the June 1 deadline passed with a favorable number of validated signatures counted by county clerks across the state.[1]

According to reports, the number of validated signatures by county clerks were as follows: 65,088 for SB 1108, 65,252 for SB 1110, and 63,744 for SB 1184. In order for a proposed veto referendum to be placed on the 2012 statewide ballot for Idaho voters to decide, at least 47,432 signatures for each targeted bill must be collected within 60 days after lawmakers leave for the session.

Once the clerks verify enough signatures, the verified signatures are then returned to the supporters. Supporters then have until June 6, 2011 to submit them to the Idaho Secretary of State.
