County Wide Ballot Measure:
Skagit County Proposition No. 1 Freeholder Election
Under Washington State Constitution Article XI, Section 4, a petition was submitted for election of freeholders to prepare and propose a charter form of county government.
Pursuant to the petition, the Board of Skagit County Commissioners adopted Resolution No. 20180148 setting the procedure for election of freeholders.
If a majority of voters approve the election of freeholders to propose a county charter, twenty-one (21) freeholders, seven (7) per commissioner district, would meet to prepare a charter for Skagit County to be submitted to the voters.
Should twenty-one (21) freeholders be elected, to prepare a charter for Skagit County to be submitted to the voters?
