328,125 Signatures Submitted

to get I-1464 on the ballot in November!

 I-1464 leaders gather to turn in signatures

Thank you! Thanks to volunteers and supporters like you, Integrity Washington reached an important milestone on July 8th. After months of hard work we turned in 328,125 signatures to get Initiative 1464 on the November ballot!

What comes next? Over the next few weeks, the Secretary of State's office will be processing petitions and reviewing signatures to verify the minimum of 246,372 signatures needed to make the ballot.signatures delivered to the Secretary of State

We will be monitoring the process to ensure every signature is counted properly. If you would like to help with this process, please keep reading to learn how.

As we move forward, we will also need your help telling voters across the state about I-1464. If you haven't already, sign up for information about upcoming volunteer opportunities, and be sure to share our Facebook page with your friends. Getting signatures turned in was a huge step, but the campaign is just beginning!

LWVWA has endorsed support for the following initiatives 
(all are in the signature gathering phase):

I-1433 Initiative Measure No. 1433 concerns labor standards.

This measure would increase the state minimum wage to $11.00 in 2017, $11.50 in 2018, $12.00 in 2019, and $13.50 in 2020, require employers to provide paid sick leave, and adopt related laws.


I-1464 Initiative Measure No. 1464 concerns campaign finance laws and lobbyists.

This measure would create a campaign-finance system; allows residents to direct state funds to candidates; repeal the non-resident sales tax exemption; restrict lobbying employment by certain former public employees; and add enforcement requirements.


I-1491 Initiative Measure No. 1491 concerns court orders temporarily preventing access to firearms.

This measure would allow police, family, or household members to obtain court orders temporarily preventing access to firearms by persons who, because of mental illness or other factors, may harm themselves or others.
