In order to place the proposed measure on the 2010 ballot, supporters were required to collect a minimum of 12,844 valid signatures from North Dakota voters by August 4, 2010. However, by petition deadline day, supporters failed to collect and submit sufficient signatures.
However, the petition was valid for one year and may still appear on the 2012 ballot. The petition is valid until December 30, 2010.
