Petition form…or blanket?

If you're approached by a Referendum 71 signature-gatherer and want to read the petition before you sign it, you'd better bring a magnifying glass, a chair and a cool drink.

As required by law, R-71 authors managed to squeeze the entire 114-page bill onto a single sheet of paper. A very big sheet of paper. Dave Ammons, with the Secretary of State's office, reports that:

"The whole petition, when unfolded, is map-sized, nearly 2 feet by 3 feet, front and back."

(Ammons is the guy holding up the petition in the photo.)
