Are Signatures on a Petition Public Records?

David Ammons in the Secretary of State’s office has been providing ongoing updates on the status of a move to keep petition signatures private.

The issue centers on Referendum 71, the one that would overturn the “Everything but Marriage” bill passed by the Legislature earlier this year. But the question didn’t begin this year. Initiative and referendum proponents have long argued that the identity of signers and signature gatherers should remain private.
