The Spokane County Auditor's Office may have slightly different percentages than are reflected here because its figures include any write-in votes.

About The Measure

As a result of a voter initiative Washington voters are asked about any tax increases approved by the Legislature and signed into law. These votes are advisory only and have never resulted in lawmakers changing an approved tax.
