Input can be provided by submitting written comments into the record for commission consideration at https://clark.wa.gov/county-manager/charter-review-commission-public-comment. The commission encourages residents to submit written comments into the record throughout the review process.

The Charter Review Commission is tasked with reviewing the county’s home rule charter approved by voters in November 2014. This will be the first review of the county’s charter.

The 15 commission members were elected in the Nov. 3, 2020, general election. Any changes to the charter that the review commission recommends would go to a countywide vote in a general election.
