Vashon/Maury Island Community Council

Citizens of Vashon and Maury Island (in King County) elected their Community Council using ranked choice voting software from the web. This small community in the Puget Sound area showed how it can be done.

It appears as if this is a quasi-government group and not subject to the rules of the state elections law. Fire districts and park districts are subject to the state election laws. With the passage of HB 2202 or SB 6000, fire districts and park districts in Pierce County would be able to follow the lead of Vashon and Maury Island.
