Six Multnomah County Charter Amendment measures were on the November 2, 2010 ballot in Multnomah County.

Four of the six measures were approved in the county.[1]

There were six proposed charter amendments that voters were able to decide on. Charter amendments included eliminating commissioner term limits, allow officers to file for another office before their term is over, allowing the county salary commission to set the district attorney's salary, make only May and November eligible months to hold vacancy elections, require commissions who move out of their district to vacate their position and also a measure to lay the groundwork for a library taxing district. The library was asking for a more stable funding source, this proposed measure will establish that for the libraries in the county.[2]
