King County Council members created the Citizens’ Elections Oversight Committee in 2003 to oversee elections and improve performance and accountability at the then-King County Elections Division.

The council made the oversight group permanent in 2006, after the contentious 2004 contest for governor between Chris Gregoire and Dino Rossi. Overall, committee members have offered more than 180 recommendations to improve local elections.
