What happens after enough signatures are gathered?


When we gather enough signatures, we will file them with the Secretary of State's office.

The Michigan Bureau of Elections and Board of State Canvassers will review and validate them. Inevitably in a hand-to-hand operation like this, some will be found to be mistaken or incomplete, and ruled invalid. To be safe, we have to collect way more than the required 252,523. Once the required minimum is reached, the legislature will be given a chance to act, as described above.
