#4ThePeople: Spokane County commissioner election changes this year

SPOKANE, Wash. — For the first time in Spokane County, people will only be voting for county commissioners from their district.

House Bill 2887, which passed back in 2018, made it so all Washington counties that have a population over 400,000 will have a district-based county commission structure.

This year, 10 total county commissioner candidates are vying for your vote.

“We’re a growing community, and we needed a system of governance that matches our growing needs as a community,” said Rep. Marcus Riccelli. He sponsored the bill.

Here are the candidates that will be on your ballot:
