Election results 2018: national, Washington state and Seattle

State Measures

Initiative 1631 — Carbon tax: FAILING

This so-called "carbon tax" would charge pollution fees on large emitters of pollution. This would be the first environmental push of its kind in the U.S.

Yes: 43.6

No: 56.4

Initiative 1634 — Grocery taxes: PASSING

This would make it harder for local governments to tax distributors for retail food and drink items. It's a response to the "soda tax."

Yes: 55

No: 45

Initiative 1639 — Gun control: PASSING

If this passes, Washington state would be among the top five or six states with the toughest gun laws. It would raise the age limit for the purchase of a semiautomatic rifle to 21 from 18. This would bring it in line with the age limit for handguns, which is 21. High-profile mass shootings prompted this initiative, including several north of Seattle.

It is the only statewide gun control measure on a ballot anywhere in the midterms, but the National Rifle Association put up only $200,000.

Yes: 60.1

No: 39.8

Initiative 940 — Law enforcement: PASSING

Prosecutors would no longer have to prove a police officer acted with "malice" to charge them for use of deadly force. It would also require officers get de-escalation and mental health training. 

Yes: 59.2

No: 40.8

Advisory 19 — Pipeline tax: REPEALED

The Legislature passed a bill to tax crude oil passing through a pipeline. Voters are asked to decide whether to maintain it.

Repealed: 53

Maintained: 47
