Initiative preserves rights

Initiative 751 (preserving the blanket primary) is about the right to choose. Washington state's blanket primary is an important part of your right to vote. Without it, only party-line voters will have their full wishes as a voter counted.

Without it, Washington's citizens will lose our existing way of primary voting. Voters who vote for candidates from different parties will lose this right if we don't keep our blanket primary intact.

Show we are willing to put this to a vote at the state level by signing the Initiative 751 petition. If you don't find someone soliciting signatures in your neighborhood or at your local stores, please contact the Grange in your area, or call (800) 854-1635 to request a petition.
