Washington Referendum 71

Dgarling, thank you for your edits on Washington 2009 ballot measures. I revised your post to make the statement shorter for the sake of available chart space. Our longer article on the issue is located here. Thanks, again. BaileyL 17:58, 31 August 2009 (CDT)

The changes made were unfortunately, incorrect and incomplete. The law expands rights, responsibilities, etc. for all registered domestic partners in Washington State, not just same-sex couples. Heterosexual senior citizens are also impacted. In addition, it's important to note that only rights/responsibilities/obligations granted by the state would be extended to registered domestic partners. I've revised the entry, trying to be mindful of space (my version is one word longer), while still quoting the actual referendum and returning the reference to the actual referendum language.

September's Project of the Month

State-Legislative Scorecards-Badge.png

This September, we highlight an exciting project brought to you by our State Legislative Project on state legislative scorecards.

Ballotpedia is in the process of developing an encyclopedic list of published scorecards. It is Ballotpedia’s goal to incorporate all available scorecards regardless of ideology or number. On Ballotpedia, we define scorecards as those produced by newspapers, interest groups, think tanks, partisan groups, 501c3s and 501c4s that provide relative rankings and covers all state or federal lawmakers. The goal of this project is to provide a comprehensive list of legislative scorecards for each state and to ensure that descriptions are unbiased and accurate. Have you seen a scorecard we've missed? Please email us at
Please include the following in your e-mail:

  • The link to the scorecard
  • The name of the organization
  • The state
  • The year or session the grades were given
