Both measures were approved

  • NO 9 (18.75%)

Sunset East Area Annexation

  • YES 6 (85.71%)Approveda

Both measure asked voters if they wanted to revoke the city of Renton's annexation of their area and instead become again unincorporated areas in King County.[2] The city of Renton annexed these two areas and they decided to challenge this annexation. A yes vote would revoke the Renton annexation of the areas. Both areas argue that taxes would be raised, but city officials stated that no tax increases would occur.[3]
