The 2018 Primary Election is now certified as official.

Workers in the Kitsap County Elections Division finalized the vote tally on Monday of the Aug. 7 primary.

Turnout countywide hit 39.5 percent, and a total of 167,088 registered voters participated in the election.

Bainbridge voters narrowed the field for one of Washington’s seats in the U.S. Senate, and Washington’s 6th Congressional District, as well as a state and county races.

In the three-way race for Kitsap County Coroner, Republican Russ Reuther (45 percent) and Jeff Wallis (31 percent) will advance to the November election. Pat Dawson, who like Wallis did not pick a party, was third (23 percent).

The primary also included the election of precinct committee officers across Kitsap County.
