About Idahoans for a Fair Wage
The group filed its initiative in February and began collecting signatures in June. The measure needs 55,057 signatures statewide and must be signed by 6% of registered voters in at least 18 of the state’s 35 districts to appear on the 2020 ballot. In Coeur d’Alene’s district 4, the momentum is strong with 50% completed already.
We are inviting new volunteers to join and are seeking donations, petition signers, petition gatherers, and even area leaders.
