      COUNTY LEGISLATURE
 
 
The County Legislature is responsible for all legislative duties in the County, including the introduction and enaction of all County resolutions. They are also responsible for the introduction and enaction of all County ordinances subject to the approval or veto of the County Executive. A veto by the Executive can be overridden by six votes of the Legislature.

Six County Legislators are elected from six local districts of similar size, each representing about one-sixth of the County’s constituents. Three County Legislators are elected from three "at-large" districts of similar size.  Every citizen in Jackson County is there-by represented by two County Legislators. CLICK on an individual Legislator's name for more details, including contact information.



The County Legislature meets once a week, alternating between the Courthouse in Kansas City and the Courthouse Annex in Independence.
