    Yeah.... I have to hope they, suddenly, don't get a "last minute" spike in votes right before the deadline, leaving us with very little time to react to and/or counter it. I've seen that happen where one side doesn't report signatures as they're collected, in an effort to lull the opposite side to sleep. Then, at the last minute, the signatures get dumped in so that the opposite side doesn't have time to challenge them.

    I have updated the OP for November. To save you some scrolling here's the new update:

    As of 2019-11-01:
    Gathered 115,052 (up 3,885) of 766,200 required for ballot placement (requirement not met, 651,148 still needed)
    Distribution threshold met in 0 of 14 districts required for ballot placement (requirement not met, 14 still needed)

    Days remaining to signature deadline (2/1/2020): 92

    Synopsis: It seems almost pointless that BAWN has submitted any signatures in the last month since they have only submitted 3,885. If they are going to make a serious effort to get this on the ballot next year they need to be turning in around 200,000+ a month now, not a few thousand. This month's total is less than the prior, and I would not be surprised if next month's total is zero. At this point they are wasting their time and money to continue to attempt to gather signatures (in my opinion). Maybe they are hoping for another mass shooting in Florida to put some wind in their sails. I don't know.

    I'm going to stick with my call from last month when I said there's no way in hell they are going to make the ballot, barring some tragedy they can capitalize upon between now and 2/1.
