PORT ORCHARD – Committees are needed to draft voters' guide arguments against proposed ballot measures submitted by the four different districts for the Feb. 12, 2019, Special Election.

The four measures are:

  • Bremerton School District is proposing a property tax levy to fund repair renovation and improvement projects.
  • Bainbridge Island School District is proposing a property tax levy for capital improvements.
  • Central Kitsap School District is proposing a property tax levy education program enrichment and operations.
  • Bainbridge Island Fire Department is requesting a permanent property tax levy for Emergency Medical Services.

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 four Districts have not appointed committees to write arguments against the measures, so the County Auditor is seeking individuals to serve on those committees.

The Special 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., December 24. Please email or call 360-337-7128 if interested.

Resolutions submitted by the districts for each measure are at the Resolutions page [DF1] on the Kitsap County Auditor's website.
