Medford, Ore. — A ballot measure to end daylight saving time in Oregon failed to collect enough signatures to qualify for the ballot.
Medford man David Miles started the petition in November to end the long time daylight saving tradition. He needed more than 117,000 signatures, or 4% of the population, to get it on the ballot. He tells NBC5 News, despite the assistance of volunteers, they gathered 820 signatures.
Miles hopes to try again next year.
