Role of the King County Council
The nine-member King County Council oversees the second largest government in the state. The County provides “regional” services to the whole county, including public health, elections, Metro transit, wastewater, solid waste, and County parks. In unincorporated areas, the County serves as the local government and provides for law enforcement, roads and bridges, permitting and development, and other local government services.

Role of the Districting Committee
By law, the Council districts must be adjusted every 10 years, using the new U.S. Census data, to reflect changes in population distribution. The King County Districting Committee is an independent, non-partisan committee responsible for redrawing the district boundaries. The Committee must follow certain legal criteria, including ensuring that the new districts are compact, contiguous, and nearly equal in population. The Committee must consider additional factors to the extent practical, including natural boundaries, city boundaries, and communities of related and mutual interest.
