FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                          
August 15, 2019
PORT ORCHARD – Committees are needed to draft voters' guide arguments against proposed ballot measures submitted by three different districts for the Nov. 5, 2019, General Election.
The three measures are all extensions of EMS operations levies approved by voters earlier. The three districts are the City of Bremerton, Kitsap County Fire Protection District 18 (Poulsbo Fire), and North Kitsap Fire & Rescue.
According to Revised Code of Washington 29A.32.280, Districts proposing the measures are responsible for appointing committees to write arguments for and against each measure. The three Districts have not appointed committees to write arguments against the measures, so the County Auditor is seeking individuals to serve on those committees.
The General Election Online Voters' Guide includes official ballot titles, explanatory statements, arguments "for" and "against" each measure, and rebuttals.
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., Aug 19. Please email or call 360-337-7128 if interested. Arguments are due by 4:30 p.m., Aug. 22, 2019.
Resolutions submitted by the districts for each measure are at the Resolutions page on the Kitsap County Auditor’s website.
