MassACT Ballot Initiative Signatures — Where We Stand

It’s just after 5pm and all ballot initiative signatures are now due at city and town halls. The deadline has passed. MassACT, the health reform ballot initiative collected more than 112,000 signatures from nearly every city and town in the Commonwealth. 65,825 certified signatures are required to quality. As of 4pm, the Secretary of State’s Office — which compiles overall results via computer from city and town halls — indicates that our total number of certified signatures is — 64,585. We are quite confident we’re well over the mark, but we’ll have to wait until Monday for that official confirmation.

Don’t bite your nails on this one — bite into turkey (unless you’re a vegetarian — in which case, bite into tofu). Happy Thanksgiving to all our fellow bloggers, blogger viewers, correspondents, and occasional visitors. We’ve been doing this since April 1 of this year, and it’s been an immensely interesting and educational process. Thanks to all of you for helping us along in so many ways.
