  1. If the random sampling result is more than 110 percent of the needed 58,634 signatures, the petition is considered sufficient for the ballot without additional verification.
  2.  If the random sampling result is less than 90 percent of the needed signatures, the petition is insufficient.
  3. If the random sampling result is more than 90 percent  but less than 110 percent, the ROV must examine and verify all of the signatures submitted.​
