CARSON CITY, NEVADA -- The petition for the Coalition for the Protection of Marriage was approved by the Nevada secretary of state's office when ballot signatures reached 120,558. This is over three times the required number of registered voters needed to put the intiative on the November ballot. The ruling, by Deputy Secretary for Elections Susan Morandi, advances the Mormon-church endorsed ban to its final step of test sampling to verify registered voters.

The measure is heavily supported by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and recognizes marriage as that of only a man and a woman. The Progressive Leadership Alliance of Nevada and 20 other groups across the state have formed the Coalition for Unity to campaign against the ballot measure.

County clerks have until July 7 to verify registered voter signatures.
