Making the Ballot?

From an email I was given by someone very concerned about the efforts to repeal the income tax on November's ballot:
We're surging forward. Running as fast as we can to finish the final phase to getting the END the Income Tax Initiative on this November 4th ballot.

20,000 raw petition signatures is all that stands in our way.

We need to collect these final 20,000 raw petition signatures by June 9th. We have to submit these signatures to 351 different towns and cities, get them certified, pick up the petitions - and, finally, turn them in to the Secretary of State's Office.
Clearly, the group is having some trouble getting enough signatures to make the ballot. Let's all hope they can't and do what we can to stop it - educating our friends, family and coworkers on the issue.

I've had no trouble getting signatures. And I understand that Swampscott hasn't had any trouble either!

Less than 3,000 so far, tens of thousands to go. I'm sure you will get on the ballot, but the deadline isn't that far off...

The entire infrastructure that is the state budget is about to be dismantled and not a single word from the idiots on the hill. Perhaps they are not concerned. Perhaps they are too stupid to understand how pissed off people are. My money is on stupid.
