North Dakota Petition Signature Collectors Accused Of Breaking The Law

Posted: Updated:
Some petition signature collection efforts during yesterday's primary are being called into question by a group opposing a ballot measure that would set aside more of the state's oil extraction taxes for conservation, education and recreation.

The dispute is over whether some signature collectors were too close to polling sites, including at one polling place in Grand Forks.

State law prohibits people from soliciting voters within 100 feet of the entrance to a polling site.

The group, North Dakotans for Clean Water, Wildlife and Parks says it didn't break the law.

The opposition group, North Dakotans for Common Sense Conservation says it plans to file complaints with the Secretary of State's Office.
