See How One Vote 
REALLY DOES
Make a Difference

Kitsap County has had numerous elections decided by as little as a handful of votes dating to the mid-1990s. Since then, we have had six races decided by one vote, and two races were dead heats decided by a simple coin toss. Lower turnout and close elections mean that each vote carries greater importance, particularly for our local election measures and contests.
