BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - City of St. George supporters will have to meet a Wednesday deadline in order for the issue to go before a vote. 

They need to turn in 18,000 petition signatures to get the incorporation movement on the November ballot.

Last week, organizers said they were still about 1,000 signatures short of their goal. 

However, they added they are not in any rush because they hope to have the required number of signatures by October, which is the deadline for the December election.
