The North Dakota secretary of state approved two petitions Tuesday morning that would allow supporters to gather signatures to put the University of North Dakota Fighting Sioux nickname change on a ballot. One petition would simply overturn the decision while another measure would actually include the name in the state's constitution, if approved. The Associated Press points out that supporters need 27,000 signatures by Aug. 8 to get the issue on the November ballot.
