Washington Primary Nominations and Registration, Referendum 14 (1922)
The Washington Primary Nominations and Registration Act, also known as Referendum 14, was on the November 7, 1922 ballot in Washington as a veto referendum, where it was defeated, thus overturning the legislation. The measure would have enforced a closed primary, given powers of voter registration procuration to city comptrollers or town clerks and required electors to state their party affiliation at the time of registration.
