A Gervais City Home Rule Charter measure was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Marion County, which is in Oregon, where it was approved.

This measure provided a new Home rule charter for the City of Gervais. The new charter is structured by incorporating language recommended by the League of Oregon Cities Model Charter. This new charter is designed to simplify language, set forth qualifications for elected offices and provisions for vacancy of office and expressly explain how charter amendments, revisions, replacements and repeals may occur while maintained the current make-up of the Council being the Mayor and five Councilors who would be nominated and elected at large by the City voters.[1]
