A "yes" vote on the measure would have prohibited the use of statistical sampling procedures in signature verification. This meant that the Secretary of State would have been required to examine every petition signature, rather than using random sampling.
Oregon Ballot Measure 1 was one of 29 initiatives filed by Sizemore for the 2008 ballot. As of October 2007, Sizemore's website included Ballot Measure 1 as one that he was actively pursuing.
History of the initiative
Sizemore and Trickey filed the wording for the initiative with the Oregon Secretary of State on February 16, 2006. Although the wording was filed in 2006, the intent of the measure's sponsors was to collect signatures to qualify the measure for the November 4, 2008 ballot.
Oregon Ballot Measure 1 did not make the ballot in 2008.
In order to qualify for the ballot, 82,769 valid signatures needed to be turned into the Secretary of State's office.
