Signatures for Anti-LGBT Referndum 71 Have Low Error Rate

According to blog Seattle PI, the secretary of state's office is reporting that only 11.34 percent of the first 5,000 signatures on Referendum 71 - the attempt to repeal Washington's "everything but marriage" same-sex domestic partner law - have been rejected.

This is better-than-average, given that past signature error rates historically reach 18 percent. With 137,689 signatures turned in last week, 14 percent more than the necessary minimum, it is still unclear whether or not Referendum 71 will quality for this November's ballot.
