Paradise candidate’s filing blocked due to e-signatures

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The lieutenant governor’s office has rejected a candidate’s paperwork to file to challenge Utah Gov. Gary Herbert because it contained e-signatures. Candidate Farley Anderson tried to submit on Friday 954 print signatures and 178 electronic ones. The minimum number it takes to enter the race is 1,000. Lieutenant governor’s office spokesman Mark Thomas says Utah law requires a candidate to provide the names on paper. Anderson says he plans to return later in the day with the required of paper signatures. Friday is the last day for filing to run for federal and state office.
