- See also: California signature requirements
The signature deadlines for the approved-for-circulation initiatives below (see right-most column) are based on when the Attorney General of California provided a ballot title and summary for the proposal. In order to qualify for the November 6, 2012 ballot, initiative sponsors would have had to file their signatures by March 2, 2012 (if a full check of all signatures was required) or by April 20, 2012 (if so many signatures were filed that the random sampling system can be used).
See, however, Is April 20 the real signature deadline in California? Based on the fact that five major proposed initiatives filed their signatures between May 1 and May 15, 2012, it seems likely that initiative sponsors actually had about three weeks to submit their signatures past the deadline that had earlier been announced by the California Secretary of State. (Sponsors of a sixth initiative filed their signatures on May 18).
Note: The initiatives listed below did not file signatures in time to qualify for the November 6, 2012 ballot. If they file within their alloted 150-day deadline, however, they can still qualify for the state's 2014 ballot.
