OLYMPIA – As Washington residents hit the parks, the malls and the supermarkets this holiday weekend, they may get a chance to take part in one bit of democracy central to most Independence Day weekends – the last big push to get signatures for ballot initiatives in this year’s election. Just as colonists struck a blow for freedom against tyranny 235 years ago with the Declaration of Independence, Washington residents can strike a blow for freedom to limit the use of gasoline taxes, give hens that lay eggs more room to move around, smoke marijuana without fear of arrest, require more training for people who care for the elderly and disabled, or buy liquor from privately owned stores.
