How Are Washington State, County And Municipal Governments Organized?


The entire area of the state of Washington is encompassed by county governments. A county’s governing body is known as the board of county commissioners except for home rule counties, which are governed by the county council.

Although consolidated city-county governments are authorized by state statutes, none currently exist in the state.

Municipal Governments

Municipal governments in Washington are the cities and towns. Charter municipalities are divided into two classes according to population size at the time of their organization, as follows:

  • First class-10,000 inhabitants or more.
  • Second class-1,500 or more inhabitants.
  • Towns-Fewer than 1,500 inhabitants.

Change from one class to another occurs only after voter approval. Cities with a population of 10,000 or more may adopt a home rule charter with voter approval. In addition, since 1969, all municipalities may acquire statutory home rule by becoming a noncharter code municipality.

Two cities, Union Gap and Waitsburg, operate under charters granted prior to 1889 by the former Washington territory.

The minimum population requirement for incorporation is 300; however, if the proposed incorporation is within five air miles of a city of 15,000 population or more, the minimum population requirement is 3,000.

Township Governments

Authorizing legislation for townships was repealed in 1997. Townships were last reported in operation for the 1972 Census of Governments.
