Unofficial Vote Count Shows Measure 2-140 Not Passing

As of 8:00 pm today, the unofficial vote count is showing that Measure 2-140 will not pass. While this news is disappointing, the County remains committed to addressing core issues of community safety, mental health, and homelessness. In the coming days, Benton County leaders will work to assess and understand why the measure was not approved.

The Board of Commissioners and County staff will begin conversations with community stakeholders to develop consensus-based approaches for reinvesting in our core facilities.
