Seattle’s $15 minimum wage law won’t face a referendum in the fall.
King County Elections today said two referendum attempts failed to submit enough valid signatures to qualify for the ballot.
One, brought by business group Forward Seattle, submitted 18,929 signatures, but only 14,818 were found to be valid. The other referendum, by Save Our Choice, submitted 455 valid signatures.
Both measures needed 16,510 signatures to make the ballot.
