Romney is not going to be on the Washington State ballot. Libertarians Suing the Republican Party...

Washington State has a jungle primary system (think of it as Louisiana North, although California has gone over to it also). As well as denying Democrats and Republicans the right to choose their own nominees for all offices, it has a few other strange effects. In 2010, the Republican party did not officially nominate any candidate for the Senate for internal reasons. As a consequence, the party did not get 5% of the vote in the Senate election and under state law, does not qualify as a major party entitled to get its presidential candidate on the 2012 ballot automatically. While this may seem absurd, the Libertarian Party is now suing the state to make sure it actually follows its own law.
