Establishing Committees “For” and “Against” a Local Measure RCW 29A.32.280 

For each measure from a jurisdiction that is included in the Local Voters’ Pamphlet, the
legislative authority of that jurisdiction shall formally appoint, by the statutory deadline,
committees “For” and “Against” the measure.

The jurisdiction shall appoint persons known to favor the measure to serve on the “For”
committee and shall appoint persons known to oppose the measure to serve on the
“Against” committee. An email is required for each committee appointed for
correspondence with the Elections Division.

Committee members must reside within the district they will be preparing statements
“for” and “against."

Each committee shall consist of not more than three members; however, a committee may
seek the advice of any other person or persons.

If such persons are not immediately known, the jurisdiction is encouraged to employ some
formal means of notifying the public that members of the “For” and “Against” committees
are being sought.

The jurisdiction is responsible for providing committee members with copies of
instructions, specifications, and deadlines for all statements.

The committees are solely responsible for submitting their statements to the Elections
Division by the deadline for that election.
