The Missouri Secretary of State’s office reported that a record 143 petitions were submitted for approval for this election cycle. Sunday at 4 p.m. was the deadline under the law for petitions to be submitted to the secretary of state’s office for this election cycle. Four made it just at the deadline.

For a petition seeking to change a Missouri statute, valid signatures from registered voters equal to 5 percent of the total vote cast in the 2008 governor’s election from six of the state’s nine congressional districts (the state has eight districts after the latest census) must be submitted. That means there must be between 91,818 and 99,600 valid signatures, depending on the combination of districts.
