Auditor seeks to appoint committee members for voters’ pamphlet

The Pierce County Auditor’s Office is opening a special appointment period to recruit individuals to write for and against committee statements for the Feb. 13, 2024, Special Election Local Voters’ Pamphlet.

Against Committee members needed

  • Puyallup School District No. 3 – Proposition 1 – Capital Levy to Restore, Improve, and Replace School Infrastructure
  • Carbonado Historical School District No. 19 – Proposition 1 – Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy
  • Sumner-Bonney Lake School District No. 320 – Proposition 1 – Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy
  • Sumner-Bonney Lake School District No. 320 – Proposition 2 – Replacement Levy for Instructional Technology Improvements and Security Upgrades
  • Orting School District No. 344 – Proposition 1 – General Obligation Bonds - $117,000,000
  • Clover Park School District No. 400 – Proposition 1 – Replacement Educational Programs and Operations Levy
  • Eatonville School District No. 404 – Proposition 1 – Replacement Educational Programs & Operations Levy
  • Eatonville School District No. 404 – Proposition 2 – Capital Projects Levy 

The district did not appoint against committee members to prepare statements for the local voters’ pamphlet. As a result, RCW 29A.32.280 directs the Auditor’s Office to seek out and appoint up to three members to form the committee. A link to District resolutions and explanatory statements can be found at www.PierceCountyElections.org in the current election section.

    • Committee appointments and participation;
    • Word limits, format requirements, and deadlines for statements and rebuttals.
  • Have your name appear in the local voters’ pamphlet and waive anonymity. 

At least one committee member must be willing to submit phone number, email, or website address for publication in the local voters’ pamphlet. Those interested who agree to the above responsibilities can email a request that includes name, voter registration address, phone number, and the district they wish to write a statement for to [email protected]. Appointments will be made in the order that the requests are received.  

Deadlines
The deadline to request a committee appointment is Dec. 19, 2023, at noon. The deadline to submit a committee statement is Dec. 19, 2023, at 4:30 p.m.

NOTE: Individuals requesting appointment on Dec. 19 must be prepared to submit the statement by email on the same day. The Auditor’s Office is unable to extend the deadline.
