Questions About Gathering Signatures at Voting Sites

Posted: Updated:
Two statewide groups are at odds over more than just a ballot issue.

A group opposing a proposed conservation amendment is accusing its supporters of gathering signatures illegally outside of polling sites Tuesday.


 
The Secretary of State's Office says those gathering signatures cannot be within 100 feet of a site open for voting.

They also cannot approach people inside that 100-foot zone for the purpose of gathering signatures.

Allen Geiser, a
 volunteering for supporters of the Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks Amendment, says his group is aware of the laws.

His table at Horizon Middle School in Bismarck is about 150 feet away from the doors.

 A spokesperson for the North Dakotan's for Common Sense Conservation Coalition, the group opposed to the amendment, says they will file formal complaints at a later date.

Amendment supporters need nearly 27-thousand signatures to get it on the November ballot.
