KING COUNTY, Washington: The King County primary election was held on Tuesday, August 18, 2009. Two ballot measures will appear on the ballot. Both measures require to be approved by a simple majority of those voting.

  • Proposition 1 (Proposed Annexation to the City of Burien): The measure calls for voters to vote for or against the annexation of the North Highline South Annexation area to join the city of Burien.[1]
  • Referendum 1 (City of Seattle): The referendum calls for voters to approve or reject a 20-cent fee on disposable shopping bags. If approved the stores with annual gross sales of under $1,000,000 could keep all of the fees they collected. All other stores, however, could keep 25% of the fees they collected and would send the remainder to the City.[2]
