Hunt also alleged she’s heard from a voter who was told by the anti-abortion group that she could sign the petition for her entire family. Nebraska law requires individual voters to sign for themselves. A spokesperson for the Protect Women & Children campaign wrote off the allegations and hundreds of affidavits as a “spectacle” in a statement to theTo get on the ballot, both abortion rights and anti-abortion groups needed to submit 123,000 valid signatures by July 3. Protect Our Rights says it submitted 207,000 signatures, while Protect Women & Children says it submitted 205,000. The secretary of state’s office is in the early stage of counting and validating these signatures.
