COLUMBUS, Ohio Opponents of Ohio's new collective bargaining law say they have enough signatures to get a repeal question on November's ballot.

The We Are Ohio campaign said Monday it has surpassed the roughly 231,000 valid signatures needed to ask voters whether the law should be tossed out.

The campaign based its findings on preliminary results from 63 of the state's 88 counties. The group says it has more than 800,000 valid signatures.

County elections officials were to report their signature review to Secretary of State Jon Husted's (HYOO'-steds) office by Monday. Husted has until July 26 to verify whether the opponents have met the requirements.

The contentious law bans public employees from striking and restricts collective bargaining rights for more than 350,000 teachers, police officers, state employees and other public workers.

They've been stealing from all of us for long enough!
