The Kitsap County Elections Division certified the results of the Feb. 11 Special Election as official on Feb. 25.

A total of 42,553 ballots were cast countywide in the election, which featured two school levies for Bainbridge Island voters, as well as levy propositions in Bremerton, Central Kitsap and North Kitsap.

Voters approved all of the school levies on the ballot.

Also on the ballot, but falling to defeat, was a proposition to enlarge the territory of the Port of Poulsbo.

County elections officials pegged turnout at 38.9 percent of eligible voters.

The final official numbers show both Bainbridge levies passing in landslide proportions.

Proposition 1, the Educational Programs and Operations Levy, was approved with a 76.1 percent "yes" vote. Opposition was 23.9 percent.

The final vote tally was 6,307 in favor, and 1,984 against.

Proposition 2, the Technology Levy, was approved with 72.3 percent of the vote. The "no" vote was 27.7 percent.

The actual vote count was 5,983-2,296.
