On November 5, 2002 the citizens of Leon County approved making our county a Home Rule Charter county. The charter provides citizens more direct participation in county government. Specific citizen powers outlined in the proposed charter include:

Initiative–citizens can petition to call for a referendum to consider charter revisions or petition to bring an ordinance before the Board of County Commissioners for an official vote.

Charter Review–citizens can review and make recommendations for charter revisions.

Recall–citizens can remove a commissioner from office for official misconduct.
