LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas Secretary of State Mark Martin says the Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Amendment did not meet the signature requirements after the verification process.

The proposed amendment requires an additional 17,133 verified signatures to reach the 78,133 needed to be placed on the general election ballot.

The Secretary of State’s Office has notified the petition sponsor that they now have an additional 30 days to collect signatures to compensate for those disqualified during the signature verification process.
