Colorado Secretary of State Scott Gessler announced today that the Colorado Personhood Coalition has missed the Monday deadline for ballot certification for the “Personhood” Amendment to appear on the November 2012 ballot. On August 29, Gessler determined that the amendment did not have enough valid signatures to qualify for the November 2012 election.
While the proponents of the amendment were allowed 30 days to file an appeal of the signature decision, Gessler said it is now too late to get the measure on the ballot for this election cycle. Should ruling on the signatures be overturned by the courts, the “Personhood” Amendment would have to to wait until the 2014 election.
