King County Charter Review Commission
About the Charter Review
In 1969, King County voters were the first in the State of Washington to adopt a home rule charter. Our charter provides us with a fundamental, underlying framework of how we govern our region. It requires that everyone, regardless of position or office, abide by a higher law.
The Charter specifies that at least once every ten years, the Executive appoint a citizen commission to review the charter and recommend changes.
