by Inlander Staff


All results statewide as of Tuesday night





R-55 * Charter Schools


Yes 701,624 / 41.4%


No 991,730 / 58.6%





"I voted yes. It's time that we helped public schools -- they're falling through the cracks. They need to get rid of all the bad teachers, but you can't because they've got tenure."


-- Gladys Grady


83, Sinto Senior Center





"I voted against it. They've spread themselves too thin -- the focus should be on giving to the public schools. You know, charter schools are just a Band-Aid solution. I strongly disapprove of more commercialization in classrooms. If there's corporate influence, I am against it."


-- Darylann Fredericks


a Republican and retired teacher


Sinto Senior Center





"I voted no. It takes public money away from schools."


-- Tom Coomes


41, physician, Valleyford Fire Station





"Yes. I believe people should have the authority to pick the best public schools for their kids."


-- Rich Sipes


35, medical sales, Valleyford Fire Station





I-297 * Hanford Cleanup


Yes 1,129,128 / 68.5%


No 520,314 / 31.5%





"I voted no because I'm not sure where the money is going to come from and that it will just generate a lot more lawsuits."


-- Sharon Willey


Prince of Peace Church, Indian Trail





"I voted yes. We need to have a say there. We're not going to let them turn our state into a nuclear waste dump without a fight."


-- Larry Davidson


Bemiss Elementary, Northeast Spokane





I-872 * Changing the Primary


Yes 1,026,500 /59.9%


No 686,271 / 40.1%





"I voted for it. We shouldn't pigeonhole people in that way. I don't vote a straight ticket that way."


-- Roger Waller


44, investment adviser, Manito United Methodist Church, South Hill





"Against it. You should be able to have a choice on which party to vote for and support the party of your choice."


-- David Bickler


23, Valleyford Fire Station





I-884 * Sales Tax for Education


Yes 673,328 / 38.9%


No 1,056,382 / 61.1%





"I'm all for education. I just think that any amount we can get for education is a plus."


-- Jack Scofield


Opportunity Elementary





"No, I don't believe in the public school system, I think there is a lot of waste in it. They're very liberal, social, atheist environments."


-- Craig Eggleston


Opportunity Elementary





I-892 * new Slot Machines


Yes 687,808 / 39.4%


No 1,055,956 / 60.6%





"[I voted] no, because I used to be in the gaming business and trust me, [slot machines] are no good. They're an abomination, and you can quote me on that one."


-- Steve Bergstrom


Opportunity Elementary





The Inlander election team didn't find a voter who supported this measure.
