To Organize a Township is to form a Township Government and become a Civil Township.
A Civil Township may consist of one or more "Congressional Townships." The term Congressional Township refers to the 6-mile by 6-mile square of land that is identified by a Township and Range Number.
To meet the organizing requirements, more than one congressional township can be organized together.
Petition to the County Commission by 25% of the qualified electors that voted in the previous gubernatorial general election
County Commissioners SHALL submit the question of organization to the qualified electors of the township
Publish newspaper notice of election at least 30 days prior to the election
County Commission shall appoint election officials necessary for the election
If a majority of the votes cast approve of organization, the township MUST then be organized
If the petitions filed for organization did not designate a name, the board of county commissioners shall select one.
