Yes, that's correct. If the washer is missing, it is easy to fabricate a replacement from a piece of thin, stiff plastic, e.g. cut from a plastic milk carton.

It helps if you have all the pieces to the bolt; the tabbed washer for your style of dropout and the nut (for the back side of the regular pivot bolt) or allen bolt (for the split pivot bolt) so you don't have to crank the bolt too tightly against the dropout. If these pieces are missing, you may have trouble locating replacements and may have to fabricate something yourself.
