The deadline was Monday and the all-volunteer campaign came up short on qualifying signatures–694,000 were required for certification. a campaign spokesperson declined to say how many signatures had been gathered.
This campaign relied heavily on Internet support for signatures, instead of more traditional, face-to-face, interaction with voters.
Gay marriage groups will try again for the November 2012 ballot.
A constitutional challenge of Proposition 8 remains pending in a Sn Francisco federal court.
