How can the "dreamers" achieve citizenship?

How is there only speculation or no proof of breaking the law when Maryland's law states no petitions should be completed online? Isn't this exactly what was done in this forum? They were posted in this forum for anyone to sign.

Actually there is nothing in MD law about on-line petitions. The main thrust of the plaintiff's argument about on-line is that if one knows a person's name and birth date someone else could pull the information and submit it as a signed petition.

The other hitch is that each petition has to have attached a copy of the law or a fair summary of it, which is stated in the petition to referendum law.

The State Board of Elections verified each petition signature against the records so if someone here submitted one and they lived in Iowa, say, it would have been thrown out.

Petition signatures may be thrown out if the records have a person's middle name and the signature doesn't, if the person has moved and hasn't updated their address, or if they married and signed with their married name and haven't updated their registration to reflect that, among other reasons, although those three things are the most common reasons.
