  • Military, Overseas and Early Voting: We make it easy so your voice is heard and your vote is counted, whether you are halfway around the world or stationed here.

  • Accessible Voting: The Kitsap County Auditor is committed to providing accessible voting systems, programs, and services across our community.

  • Validation: Some measures must meet a "supermajority" to pass. This page provides the number of votes from each district from the General Election of 2018, the number districts use to calculate whether their measures pass in 2019.         

  • You are a part of an amazing community of 260,131 residents in Kitsap County (the 7th largest in Washington State) and we are very proud to serve and represent you. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay informed of the services we provide to you.

  • Elections Processing Room Camera

    During an election you can see the elections processing room through a feed on this page. We are upgrading our system using one that is not supported on Internet Explorer. To see the room you will need to use a different browser. The new system will be available for you to see ballot processing for the August 4, 2020 Primary.

  • Each election our tabulation is tested to make sure it is operating correctly. Using a formula provided by the state, ballots are counted and tested against the state's formula. On April 23, 2020, we tested the tabulation system in preparation for the April 28, 2020 Special Election. Below is the video of that test.
