TACOMA, Wash. (AP) - A group looking to boost Tacoma’s minimum wage to $15 an hour needs less than 500 more signatures to get the initiative on the November ballot.

The News Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1eAg0EE) about 41 percent of the total signatures collected by members of 15 Now Tacoma were invalidated after being reviewed by the Pierce County Auditor’s office, leaving the group short by about 480.

More than half of the nixed signatures were from people who weren’t registered to vote. Other disqualifying factors included duplicate signers and living outside Tacoma.

15 Now Tacoma has until June 17 to get the remaining signatures.
