ALBANY — More than 62,000 New York residents have signed on to an effort to create a new “Stop Common Core" ballot line to allow voters to voice their concerns about the state's new education standards.

Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob Astorino and attorney general candidate John Cahill filed the petitions with election officials on Tuesday. Astorino is leading the effort to create the new line, which he says will let voters know which candidates oppose the standards.

Fifteen thousand valid signatures are required to get the new line added to the fall ballot.

If approved, the line would appear along with the major parties and lesser ones like the Green Party and the Working Families Party. New York election law allows candidates to run on multiple ballot lines.
