Ballot initiative defining a person short on signatures

A proposed initiative for the 2010 ballot to define a person at the moment of conception failed to turn in enough signatures, Colorado Secretary of State Bernie Buescher announced Wednesday.

Buescher said the petitions, which were turned into his office Feb. 12, fell well short of the 76,047 needed to make the November ballot.

A random sampling of the signatures resulted in more than 3,000 being rejected. Random sampling is the normal method for verifying signatures, which is why most petition circulators turn in thousands more signatures than needed. This one only turned in 79,648.

But under state law, the ballot supporters have 15 days, until March 18, to collect additional signatures to correct the problem.
