Initiatives….What Are These Things ?

With the Primary days away and the political super bowl, November 6th, quickly approaching the swirl of political terms, ads, and candidates overwhelm us all!

Initiative: A way by which a petition signed by a minimum # of voters, 241,153 in Washington, force a public vote.

 Three are on the Ballot this November!!!

□ Initiative 502 (Legalize Marijuana) – Would legalize and regulate the sale of small amounts of marijuana to people 21 and older

□ Initiative 1240 (Allow Charter Schools) – Allow 40 public charter schools in the state over five years

□ Initiative 1185 (About Taxes) – Would require either two thirds legislative approval or a vote by the people in order to raise taxes.
