State elections officials will start counting and verifying the 138,000 signatures on Friday. Whether the measure gets onto the November ballot will be determined by the error rate: How many bad signatures are there?

The historic average is 18 percent invalid signatures. Referendum 71 petitioners turned in only 14 percent extras, so they might just miss the cutoff. Stay tuned.
