BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - The East Baton Rouge Registrar of Voters Office is almost finished validating the massive St. George petition for incorporation, which will determine whether the proposed new city will be put to a vote.

Amy Pourciau, a spokeswoman, told The Advocate (https://bit.ly/18UvXSL) Monday her office has reviewed the signatures on the more than 1,000-page petition and is moving on to the process of removing the signatures of people who signed the petition then requested their names be removed.

She said 139 people submitted forms asking that their names be removed.

Pourciau said 17.5 percent of the names on the petition were invalidated. But she said she couldn’t disclose the total number of signatures checked or the actual number of signatures that were invalidated until the process is completed.
