Olympia, WA – Preserve Marriage Washington (PMW) today will submit over 241,000 signatures in support of Referendum 74, more than two times the number necessary to qualify a referendum putting the definition of marriage on the November ballot.
“The response to our petition drive has been incredible throughout every corner of the state,” said Joseph Backholm, Chairman of Preserve Marriage Washington. “We will submit a record number of signatures, over 100,000 signatures more than were secured in the 2010 R-71 effort, and more than twice the number necessary for qualification. Support for Referendum 74 was strong from the beginning, and has grown as the signature drive has advanced. Our coalition is excited and committed to preserving marriage this November.”
