The first round of results are in for Tuesday’s (April 25, 2023) Special Election, and King County Proposition No. 1 (Crisis Care Centers Levy) is passing with 54.43% approval.

If approved with a simple majority, this proposition would fund behavioral health services and capital facilities, including a countywide crisis care centers network, increased residential treatment; mobile crisis care; post-discharge stabilization; and workforce supports.

This levy would raise $1.25 billion for the construction and operation of five walk-in crisis centers throughout King County as a nine-year property tax.

It was the only proposition on local ballots Tuesday.
