Concerns that an anti-nudity initiative would be on the ballot this fall in the City of Spokane have been allayed. The group that gathered the necessary signatures turned in 3,320 signatures. However, 1,548 were ruled invalid for various reasons. This reduced the validated signatures to significantly fewer than the needed 2,477.
About one third of the invalid signatures came from people who live outside of the city of Spokane. Another third came from unregistered voters. The rest were invalidated because they were duplicates, couldn’t be verified or the signatures didn’t match what the county had on file.
Thanks go out to our Spokane nudists for their visibility at the city council meetings and with the city council.
