The Nevada County Chapter of Americans for Safe Access has yet to discover whether they have gathered enough legitimate signatures to qualify to have their initiative placed on the June 5 primary election.
The Nevada County Elections Office has until Feb. 12 to verify the more than 10,729 signatures that were submitted by the medical marijuana advocacy group.
The group will need to have 9,131 signatures to put an initiative on the election ballot.
Smith said during a recent interview that she had no update from the elections office regarding the verification process.
The special election will ask voters to approve a revised ordinance that will remove some requirements currently on the books, including setback regulations, square footage requirements and provisions relating to fencing.
Smith said her organization polled the community and 70 percent of respondents felt the current ordinance was overreaching.
