OLYMPIA, Washington: Supporters of Washington Referendum 71 have scheduled an appointment this Saturday, July 25, to submit the required number of signatures to place the measure on the ballot. The new domestic partnership law is scheduled to take effect Sunday, July 26, but if the petitions are submitted then the law will be placed on hold until the election. A grand total of 120,577 valid voter signatures are required but election officials have suggested a minimum of 150,000 to ensure that the measure is placed on the ballot.[1]
