Under Article XI, § 3, of the Washington State Constitution, territory may be transferred from one county to another by (1) petition of the voters living in the territory to be transferred; and (2) compliance with general enabling legislation applicable to the entire state; however, since there is no existing enabling legislation, such legislation would have to be enacted for that purpose.
