The group pushing to change the state's redistricting process may not be able to produce enough signatures in time to get on the November ballot.

State Board of Elections Chairman Jesse Smart says nearly 32,000 of the original signatures were from people who signed more than once, wrote illegibly, or lived out of state.

The group is getting a second chance to prove their signatures make the cut, but they have just a few short weeks to make it happen. That's because the Board of Elections wants to finalize the ballot and have it prepared for print on August 23rd.
