Restore Equality 2010, the campaign that seeks to repeal Proposition 8 at the California ballot box this November, announced that it is collecting digital signatures via a new application for the iPhone and iPod Touch.
The e-signature application represents a stepped-up effort for the campaign, which needs to collect nearly 700,000 signatures before the April 12 deadline in order to qualify for the 2010 ballot.
The application, which was developed by Verafirma, a Silicon Valley company, can be accessed here.
"With an iPhone or iPod Touch, voters can access the Verafirma tool and use their finger to sign the official petition to repeal Proposition 8," said a news release from Restore Equality 2010. "An electronic copy is sent to the signer and Restore Equality 2010, who will then file it alongside the handwritten petitions."
Voters without access to an iPhone or iPod Touch may print out a petition here, then sign and mail it.
