Community members needed to write statements for voters’ pamphlet

(Port Orchard) - The Auditor’s Office is seeking individuals to serve on committees to draft voters’ guide arguments for the November 3 General Election. This is an opportunity to provide voters with information about ballot measures affecting their community.

Each ballot measure appearing in the November 3 General Election Local Voters’ Pamphlet includes the official ballot title, explanatory statement, arguments “for” and “against” the measure, and rebuttals.

The Auditor’s Office is seeking individuals to serve on committees to draft arguments against the following measures:

  • Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue Prop 1 – Equipment Bond Measure

  • Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue Prop 2 – Maintenance and Operations Levy

  • City of Bremerton Prop 1 – Public Safety Bond Measure

  • Kitsap Public Utility District Prop 1 – Authorizing Sewage System Acquisition and Operation

  • Port of Illahee – Elimination of Commissioner Districts

  • South Kitsap Fire and Rescue Prop 1 – Equipment Bond Measure

Committee members do not have to be residents of the district in order to draft arguments. Interested parties should contact the Elections Division by 4:30 p.m., August 18. Please email auditor@co.kitsap.wa.us or call 360.337.7128 if interested.

More information on these ballot measures is available online.

“It is my goal to provide as much information as possible to the voters of Kitsap County,” said Kitsap County Auditor Dolores Gilmore. “The statements for and against in the Local Voters’ Pamphlet are an excellent way to educate voters on the pros and cons of a ballot measure.”
