Signatures can now be turned in for I-1698, the 2020 Fetal Heartbeat Initiative. This initiative requires that an ultrasound be performed before an abortion is procured, and if a heartbeat is detected, then an abortion is prohibited.  Petition forms must be turned in with the signatures of 259,622 registered voters by July 2, 2020 for placement on the November ballot.

Petition forms can be obtained by contacting the campaign representative below or having a printer make 11 x 17 inch forms from the file found here.  You can then get signatures, sign the affidavit on the back of the petition.  Send the form to the sponsors of this initiative by June 25, so they can have them in by the July 2nd deadline.  Get petitions and send signed petition forms here:
