An application shall be signed by at least 10 voters who will sponsor the petition. An additional sponsor may be added at any time before the petition is filed by submitting the name of the sponsor to the clerk.

(1) is not restricted by AS 29.26.100 ;

(2) includes only a single subject;

(4) would be enforceable as a matter of law.

(b) A decision by the clerk on an application for petition is subject to judicial review.
