Petitioners handed in 872 signatures and 771 were validated. They needed either 549 or 747 signatures (it was not clear if the total needed was 35% of turnout for the last election or the runoff). The election is suppose to be scheduled for Election Day in November.
Update: Thomason is contesting the petitions.
