Two ballot measures are certified for the November 5, 2013 ballot in the state of Washington.

The initiative drive deadline for initiatives to the legislature was on January 4, 2013. Two initiatives filed signatures by that deadline. When enough signatures are deemed valid for an initiative to the legislature, that initiative is sent to the legislature for review. If the legislature does not enact the proposal, it is then sent to the ballot. Washington's state legislative session began January 14, 2013, and concluded on April 28, 2013, but was followed by two special sessions. The first special legislative session concluded June 11, and the second ended June 29.[1]

The signature filing deadline for initiatives to the people was July 5, 2013. A call to the Washington Secretary of State's office confirmed that no signatures were filed by the deadline. As of the deadline, 85 initiatives had been filed, therefore it is unusual that none of these campaigns were able to gather enough signatures by the deadline. Washington ballots have not been void of initiatives to the people since 1989.[2]
