I-522 final stats

Sound Consumer | January 2014

Final, official results from the November election show I-522 lost by a very narrow margin, 48.91 percent to 51.09 percent. The difference was just 38,046 votes, meaning only 19,024 more "yes" votes were needed to win.

I-522 actually won among every age group, except seniors, and seniors determined the outcome of the extremely low voter turnout.

Only 45.27 percent of Washington state registered voters actually voted, the lowest number in a decade, six points lower than typical off-off-year elections and the predictions of election officials. Low turnouts skew results to favor the views of seniors who vote consistently, while younger, more progressive people do not.
