Drive for Referendum to Oppose California Vaccination Requirements Has Begun

Opponents of a law requiring vaccinations for children were cleared by the state of California to begin collecting signatures on a ballot referendum on the measure on Tuesday, July 14, 2015. The signatures required for the referendum are based on 5% of the total votes cast for governor in the last general election. Tim Donnelly seeks to qualify for ballot placement by collecting the signatures of 365,880 registered voters by September 28, 2015. If the proposed referendum qualifies for ballot placement, registered voters in California will vote on the referendum to create a new law during the November, 2016 election.
