Washington's Referendum 71 was approved by voters on November 3rd with 51% of the vote in favor of domestic rights. On the other hand, I-1033 failed to pass after garnering only 45% of the vote. According to state officials approximately 395,000 ballots still remain to be counted, therefore Referendum 71 will not go into effect until the election is certified. Official results are expected by the end of November.[1]
