On June 24, 2020, the California Secretary of State announced that county election officials had validated enough signatures through the random signature validation process to make the California Privacy Rights Act of 2020 (a/k/a CCPA 2.0) eligible for the November 3, 2020 ballot. The final projected valid signatures based on the random sample validation process was 718,233 signatures, well in excess of the requirement.
The measure will now move to the November ballot. Polling previously released by the Californians for Consumer Privacy – the advocacy group that submitted the CPRA – indicated that 88% of California voters supported the measure.
If passed, the CPRA will significantly revise the CCPA’s requirements. For a discussion of the CPRA, see our on-demand webinar available here.
