Text of measure
The question asked on the ballot was, "Shall fluoridation of public water supplies be made unlawful and violations subject to criminal penalties?"
Path to the ballot
Initiative 322 was filed on January 2, 1976 by Caroline A. Sudduth. 135,441 signatures were submitted to qualify it for the ballot, and the Washington Secretary of State's office decreed that not enough signatures had been turned in.
I-322's supporters filed a lawsuit against the Secretary of State's office; the case eventually went to the Washington Supreme Court, which ordered I-322 to appear on the ballot.
