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.


In 2010, Al Franken became the senator from Minnesota by just 312 votes statewide. That averaged to one extra vote for Al from each of Minnesota's polling places!

In 1985, Jim Chapman won the first U.S. Congressional seat in Texas by fewer than 5 votes per precinct.

In 1978, Marc Garcia won a seat in the California State Senate by 90 votes.

In 1974, Jerry Brown won the race for California governor by a margin of fewer than 8 votes per precinct.

In 1968, Hubert Humphrey lost the presidential race to Richard Nixon by a margin of fewer than 3 votes per precinct.

In 1960, Richard Nixon lost the presidential election and John Kennedy won by a margin of less than 1 vote per precinct.
