The National Conference of State Legislatures provided the following descriptive summary of Washington Senate Bill 5507:[2]

The following statement must be included in the ballot instructions and in a prominent position in the voters' pamphlet: "For a list of the people and organizations that donated to state and local government candidates and ballot measure campaigns, visit www.pdc.wa.gov." The Secretary of State may substitute such language as is necessary for accuracy and clarity. The county auditor or local election official, at their discretion, may instead print the statement in a prominent position on the ballot envelope and in the materials that accompany the ballot, rather than on the ballot itself.[3]
