Secretary of State's office begins final verification procedure

Alert date: 
Wednesday, October 16, 2013
Alert body: 

Protect Oregon Driver Licenses has submitted 71,000 signatures (58,142 were required) by the deadline of October 4.  The referendum petition #301, if approved, will place the new law granting driver cards to illegal aliens on the ballot in the November 2014 election.

The Secretary of State's office has 30 days to scrutinize the signatures for validity and to be certain that all signature sheets are signed, numbered properly and have no mistakes.  It is tedious work and PODL appreciates the professionalism and willingness to answer the questions of those observing the procedure.

Starting Thursday, we will begin the final phase of the approval process.  Please watch for updates.  As soon as we have confirmation that the referendum has been approved, we will post the good news.
