Signatures to be verified by random sampling--Rules.
The secretary of state shall
verify the signatures pursuant to § 2-1-15 by random sampling. The random sample of signatures to
be verified shall be drawn so that every signature received by the secretary of state shall be given an
equal opportunity to be included in the sample. The secretary of state shall calculate the number of
valid signatures by multiplying the total number of signatures received by the percentage of
successfully verified signatures from the random sample. The secretary of state shall, by rules
promulgated pursuant to chapter 1-26, establish the methodology for conducting the random sample.
The random sampling shall be an examination of five percent of the signatures received.
