Amendment 31 amended Article I, Section 25 of the Washington State Constitution. It was the 31st amendment approved to the Washington State Constitution subsequent to its adoption in 1889.

It changed Section 25 to say this:

"No person, except a citizen of the United States and a qualified elector of this state, shall be eligible to hold any state office. The compensation for state officers shall not be increased or diminished during the term for which they shall have been elected. The legislature may in its discretion abolish the offices of the lieutenant governor, auditor and commissioner of public lands."

Old text

Prior to Amendment 31's approval, Section 25 of Article III said:

"No person, except a citizen of the United States and a qualified elector of this state, shall be eligible to hold any state office, and the state treasurer shall be ineligible for the term succeeding that for which he was elected. The compensation for state officers shall not be increased or diminished during the term for which they shall have been elected. The legislature may in its discretion abolish the offices of the lieutenant governor, auditor and commissioner of public lands."

Text on the Ballot

SUCCESSIVE TERMS FOR STATE TREASURER Shall Article III, Section 25, of the Constitution be amended to remove the present restriction prohibiting the state treasurer from being elected for more than one successive term?
