2022 General Election Advisory Votes

Advisory votes are the result of Initiative 960, approved by voters in 2007. The Office of the Secretary of State publishes the Attorney General’s advisory vote description according to RCW 29A.72.283. You are advising the Legislature if you do or do not favor a tax increase passed during the recent legislative session.

Repeal — means you don’t favor the tax increase.
Maintain — means you favor the tax increase.

Advisory votes are non-binding. The results will not change the law.
