Advocates Confident 3 Questions Will Be on Ballot
Advocates for legalizing medical marijuana, allowing terminally ill adults to self-administer a life-ending drug and requiring car manufacturers to provide software needed to diagnose car trouble must have their final round of registered signatures to Secretary of State William Galvin’s office Tuesday.
The office will review the signatures to see if the proposals will be on the November ballot.
Representatives from Dignity 2012 and The Massachusetts Right to Repair Coalition said they’d submitted 16,000 certified signatures to Galvin’s office — 5,000 more than required.
Meanwhile, the Committee for Compassionate Medicine said it had submitted more than the 11,000 signatures needed for the medical marijuana proposal to make the ballot.
