Class size on the ballot

Class Size Initiative-1351 is officially certified! Secretary of State Kim Wyman says a team of 10 signature checkers finished their work which began last Monday late Thursday. Sponors of I-1351 brought in 348,072 signatures. Officials checked 10,442 random signatures. Of those checked, there was an error rate of just over 11 percent, far below the average error rate of 18 percent. The Class Size initiative is one of three initiatives by the people to appear on this November’s ballot. The other two both deal with background checks for gun purchases.

Compressed folder

Here are the files ... I tried e-mailing but Comcast told me it was too big.

As you probably know, just right click the folders to unzip after you've downloaded them. I'd already sized the images to 8x10 format for the wall display -- I'm not sure who is doing that part -- so these are not quite 1x1.5 ... more like 1.15 x 1.5. Let me know if that's a problem, or if you have trouble getting these files to work.
