Whatcom County, December 10, 2021 –– The Whatcom County Auditor’s Office, Election Division, is seeking volunteers to write a statement to appear in the February 8, 2022 Special Election Local Voters’ Pamphlet for the Bellingham School District 501, Proposition 2022-3, General Obligation Bonds - $122,000,000 ballot measure.
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 Bellingham School District has not appointed members to write a statement against the measure, so the County Auditor is seeking individuals to serve on that committee.
The Special Election Local Voters’ Pamphlet includes official ballot titles, explanatory statements, statements for and against, and rebuttals.
Committee members are required to be residents of the district in order to draft arguments and at least one person must be willing to be named in the voters’ pamphlet as a member of the committee.
Interested parties should contact the Elections Division by 4:30 pm on December 14, 2021. Interested individuals need to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (360) 778-5102. Statements are due by 4:30 pm on December 15, 2021.
