When it comes to elections, our objective is clear: support candidates that are pro-housing and pro-business.
Today, eight out of 10 families can’t afford to buy a home in the Spokane area. That’s the number one reason we’ve endorsed defenders of housing for the November election.
If we’re going to come out on the other side of this housing crisis, we need to elect leaders who are focused on solving the issues we can control: such as reworking restrictive zoning laws and prioritizing policies that support families being able to live in the same community they work in.
Your vote for County Commissioners and State Legislators will not only impact our lives today, but will lay the foundation for what Spokane will look like for decades to come. How? In addition to being responsible for the County’s administration, management, budget, planning, and economic development, Commissioners are also in charge of the Comprehensive Plan and Capital Improvement Plan—these two plans will literally shape the future of Spokane County. And here’s the thing, this year, you’ll be voting for two more Commissioners. Spokane County is going from three to five Commissioners.
As you prepare to vote, here are two important election dates to note:
- October 19-21: Ballots are mailed for the Nov. 8 election.
- November 8, 2022: Election Day. Ballots must be in a drop box or postmarked by Nov. 8.
*If you haven't registered to vote, head to olvr.votewa.gov and register by Oct. 31.
