Backers of a proposed constitutional amendment seeking California’s secession from the U.S. can begin collecting voter signatures to qualify for the 2018 ballot, the secretary of state’s office said Thursday.

Proponents have until July 25 to collect 585,407 valid voter signatures to qualify for the November 2018 ballot. (Click to Article)
