SOS To Begin I-1185 Signature Check On July 16

According to the Washington Secretary of State, Tim Eyman’s latest initiative, I-1185, contained 320,003 signatures. In order to be placed on the ballot, 241,153 of those signatures must be valid.

The total also exceeds the 25 percent buffer over the minimum signatures that elections officials suggest campaigns collect to account for invalid signatures, including duplicates, signatures from people who aren’t registered and signatures that don’t match the signature in the voter registration record.

To validate the signatures, the SOS staff first checks a 3 percent random sample (9,600 signatures). If the percentage of rejected signatures is below the buffer, then the measure qualifies for the ballot.
