What a year it's been. In January 2020, the momentum behind signature-gathering campaigns for cannabis legalization ballot measures was surging. By March, it all abruptly came to a halt as communities started to shelter in place and social distance as a result of COVID-19.
Some states extended their deadlines for signature submission, while others allowed signatures to be collected online. Legalization campaigns in Missouri, North Dakota, Arkansas, and Florida were unable to gather enough signatures to qualify their measures for the November ballot. Fortunately, the following states have succeeded in getting measures on the ballot, submitted signatures for verification, or are still actively collecting signatures.
