ASA-NC Closes in On Signature Count

With just a few days remaining to meet the deadline to file the signature petition with the County Clerk-Recorder’s Office, Americans for Safe Access – Nevada County is closing in on the required number of signatures needed to put a new medical marijuana ordinance on the ballot. ASA-NC Chairperson, Patricia, Smith, says that the group experienced a hiccup when the the required number of signatures grew by several hundred due to a miscalculation.

Smith says that her calculation was based upon the number of voters in the last 2010 election, but did not include the number of voters that participated in the election and did not cast a vote for Governor.  Smith said that additional number was a surprise, but not insurmountable.
