Supporters of Public Charter Schools Submit Over 100,000 More Signatures Than Needed To Place Initiative 1240 on November Ballot

OLYMPIA, Wash. – Supporters of Initiative 1240, a measure that will allow a limited number of public charter schools in Washington state, today submitted more than 350,000 voter signatures to the Secretary of State – over a 100,000 more signatures than needed to place the measure on the November 2012 statewide ballot.

“Today we’re submitting over 100,000 more signatures than required to place Initiative 1240 on the November ballot,” said Shannon Campion, executive director of the Washington chapter of Stand for Children, one of the groups supporting the initiative. “The fact that so many voters across the state stepped forward and signed our petitions in record time clearly shows that Washingtonians want another opportunity to vote on allowing public charter schools in our state.”
