Two initiative measures (here and here) that would privatize liquor sales in Washington state have been filed with the Office of Secretary of State. The measures will be reviewed by the state Code Reviser. After the initiatives’ sponsor gives the final OK, the Attorney General will write the ballot title and description for them. The ballot titles can be appealed by either side in Thurston County Superior Court. After all of this happens, petitions can be printed and circulated.
It takes 241,153 valid voter signatures to qualify for the statewide Nov. 2 ballot. We always recommend about 300,000, to cover any invalid signatures. July 2 is the deadline to turn in signatures for initiatives to the people.
Go here to see the other initiatives that have been filed this year.
