The Arkansas Alcoholic Beverage Amendment and the Saline County alcohol petition has fallen short on the number of signatures needed to make the ballot.
The countywide petition lacked 4,032 signatures, said Saline County Clerk Doug Curtis.
The petition was filed July 7 with 2,888 pages of signatures. Approximately 4,406 signatures were rejected, Curtis said.
A signature can be rejected if the person is not registered in Saline County or if things "don't match up," he said.
"We're not handwriting experts, and we give them the benefit of the doubt," he said.
