Arkansas Wins in 2016, the ballot committee  pushing for passage of a constitutional amendment to allow casino gambling in Boone, Miller and Washington counties, has enough valid signatures to receive extra time to collect the number of signatures required to be approved for the ballot, spokesperson Robert Coon said today. 

Arkansas law says that if 75 percent of required valid signatures are approved by the Secretary of State, a ballot committee has a 30-day cure period to continue collecting signatures. An initiated constitutional amendment requires at least 84,859 signatures from 15 counties.

Arkansas Wins submitted 92,120 signatures July 8.
