The 2018 Primary Election is now certified as official.

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

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).
