In the summer of 1889, 75 delegates assembled at the Territorial Capitol Building in Olympia to draft the state's constitution. Their first words demonstrated what they valued most. Article 1, Section 1 proclaims: "All political power is inherent in the people." This concept originated with the birth of our nation that sovereignty — ultimate power — lay neither in a king nor in a legislature, but resided in the people. And the people, being sovereign, could allocate that power however they chose. The founders of Washington believed in this principle so strongly that it became the foundation for the remainder of the state's constitution.
