In this photo taken Oct. 11, 2019, Linda Yang, of the 'Let People Vote' campaign, is seen at a demonstration against I-1000, in Bellevue, Wash. More than two decades after Washington voters banned affirmative action, the question of whether one's minority status should be considered as a contributing factor in state employment, contracting and admission to public colleges and universities is back on the ballot. The Nov. 5 vote comes months after the Legislature approved Initiative 1000 in April, on the final day of this year's legislative session. Opponents of the measure collected enough signatures to force a referendum, Referendum 88, and now voters will have the final say on whether I-1000 should become law. (AP Photo/Elaine Thompson)
