Local Ballot Measure Database

MRSC’s Local Ballot Measure Database tracks how city, county, and special purpose district ballot measures have fared in Washington State since November 2011, including the jurisdiction, date, statutory authority, voter approval percentage, and summary of each measure.

The results in this database are unofficial and are for research purposes only. Please note that MRSC does not track school district ballot measures. Many local ballot measures only require a simple majority (50% plus one) with no minimum voter turnout. However, bond measures and certain other voted revenue sources require a 60% supermajority and may also require minimum validation (voter turnout) requirements. While we do our best to accurately reflect this information in our database, MRSC does not track voter turnout and cannot guarantee that ballot measures requiring validation have met their minimum voter turnout requirements.

For official vote tallies, check with the local county auditor’s office. However, it is up to each taxing district (and not the county auditor’s office or MRSC) to determine whether any given ballot measure passed. If you believe any of the information in our research database is incorrect, please contact MRSC.

How Often are the Results Updated?

We update the database a few weeks after every special, primary, and general election, as soon as possible after the results are certified by the counties. The database is current through the November 2023 general election.

How to Use the Database

Use the filters below or search by keyword to find the information you are interested in. By default, you will see results from the last five years, but you can also tailor this to the most recent election, the last two years, or all results since November 2011.

Filter by Ballot Categories is the most powerful option, allowing you to select one or more categories such as government type, subject, funding type/statutory authority, or county.

Search by Keyword is also useful. You will get the best results by using simple and specific keywords such as “marijuana,” “fireworks,” “charter,” etc.
