Benedito, who on Sept. 8 collected the 33,140 ballot papers from the club's offices, needs 16,570 signatures to take the vote to the next stage. So far, he has, at least, a total of 6,580 signatures. 

In addition, there is a debate over how long he has to get the signatures. While Benedito says it's Oct. 2, the club believe it should close on Sept. 26 instead. It's not a minor detail as Barcelona are at home to Las Palmas on Oct. 1.

The division over the dates is due to an argument over what constitutes a working day and whether the vote starts from when the ballot papers are made available or when they're collected. 

Benedito will give a press conference on Sept. 14 to reveal how the vote is going and the total number of signatures so far. 

These add to the 2,920 signatures he got during Barça-Espanyol at the weekend:
