Leavenworth County voters will decide in November whether the county commission will expand to five members from three.

The Leavenworth County Commission approved a resolution July 10 to put the question on the November ballot.

A group pushing for the expanded board had 3,000 signatures, far more than the required 2,153, which is 5 percent of registered county voters, according to County Clerk Janet Klasinski.
