Transgender public restroom initiative fails to make California ballot
Backers of a proposed ballot initiative that sought to require transgender people to use the public restrooms that correspond with their biological sex say they have failed to qualify the measure for the California ballot.
Monday was the deadline for the initiative’s sponsors to submit voter signatures to county election offices for verification.
Karen England of the Privacy for All campaign said in a statement that the volunteer-led effort fell short of the 365,880 signatures needed to get the initiative on the November 2016 ballot. England did not reveal by how much.
LGBT rights groups in California had been gearing up to campaign against the initiative in case it qualified.
