SALT LAKE CITY — Chad Saunders, an organizer of a group working to repeal Utah’s new state flag, said they already have 502 signatures approved towards getting the issue on the ballot.
That said, that number is less than 1% of what’s needed. The group will need around 135,000 signatures from several different counties in the next two and a half weeks.
And, if all those signatures do get gathered, they still have to be verified by county clerks.
“There are 48 signatures in a packet. We have 144,000 names already out into the surface so they will get out there, we have until April 12,” Saunders told KSL NewsRadio.
