Pierce County voters will face three voting-related charter amendments in November, the County Council decided today. Here’s a scorecard from council staffer Brad Chatfield:


2007-63s3 (Farrell) — Allowing all choices to be ranked, but if the software can’t accomodate it, that choices may be limited to three – and amended on the floor to include the implementation language from 2007-68s (PASSED 5-1, Gelman nay)


2007-64 (Farrell/Muri, at the request of executive and auditor) — Governing authorities of minor parties must approve who uses their party label (PASSED 6-0)


2007-65s (Muri) — Changes RCV implementation to 2010, and amended on the floor to include the implementation language from 2007-68s (PASSED 5-1, Gelman nay)


2007-68s (Lee, at the request of the auditor) — Allowing candidates shall be eliminated until one candidate receives a majority (50 percent plus one) of the votes of the continuing ballots (PASSED 6-0)
