Text of measure

Question on the ballot:

Shall county commissioner positions become nonpartisan beginning 2013?[1][2]

State law allows the voters of a county to change the mode of selection of an elected county official. This initiative measure would make the county commissioner positions nonpartisan beginning 2013.

Result of YES vote: If this initiative measure passes, county commissioner positions will become nonpartisan in 2013.

Result of NO vote: If this initiative measure fails, candidates for county commissioner will continue to be nominated from political parties.[1][2]
