On January 7, the Nebraska Secretary of State determined that the Legal Marijuana Now Party did not have enough valid signatures. Although it had enough statewide, Nebraska requires a certain number in each of the three U.S. House districts, and the determination was that the party lacked enough signatures in U.S. House district 2, the Omaha district.
The Nebraska Secretary of State does not permit any more signatures to be filed for a petition that is short, even if there is a long time until the deadline. The deadline for this petition was not until August 1, 2022. The petition was only 28 signatures short.
