Three Jackson County Assessor, Clerk & Surveyor Appointment Questions were on the May 17, 2011 ballot in Jackson County.

All three measures were defeated[1]

These three questions asked county residents if the positions of Assessor, Clerk and Surveyor should be appointed positions rather than elected as they are now.[2] Those in favor of this measure noted that these positions do not have real power to make public policy changes and professional credentials are important for these positions. The positions would have been appointed by the County Administrator and would have been responsible to that position.[3]

Text of measure

The question on the ballot:

Shall the Jackson County Charter be Amended so that the County Assessor be Appointed Rather than Elected?[4]
