In a column published Dec. 6, the legal requirements for signatures on petitions to bring a government action to referendum were misstated. A person may either sign their name exactly as it appears on state voting rolls, or sign their last name, first name and middle initial, along with the date and the signer's home address, which must also match voter records. The signature must also match the person's name printed on the petition.

The Sun regrets the error.
