valid signatures have been submitted to election officials to qualify an initiative for the ballot.
The other way of checking signature is a 100% validity check. Under this method, the "full-check method", every signature is scrutinized. States that use the random sampling method do so because:
- It is less expensive to scrutinize a relatively small number of signatures than to look at every submitted signature. For example, if 400,000 signatures were submitted, and uder a random sampling method where just 3% of signatures are scrutinized, election officials would only have to look at 12,000 signatures versus 400,000 signatures.
- They believe that the random sampling method is just as accurate as the full-check method.
