CKSD two-year levy moves into the lead

New votes counted push the ballot approval into a 50.39% lead

.

As of Wednesday night, Central Kitsap School District’s Proposition 1 school support levy on the April 26 special election mail-in ballot is on an upward trend toward approval as votes continue to be counted by the Kitsap County Elections Division.

On Tuesday night, however, the levy outcome was in doubt as tabulated ballots showed the measure behind with 50.15% of voters against the levy, which requires 50% plus one vote for passage. But new results tallied as of Wednesday night indicated the measure had forged slightly ahead, with 8,089, or 50.39% of voters, approving the levy. Tallying votes against it were 7,964 voters, comprising 49.61% of the vote.

CKSD registered voters were asked to approve the district’s request for $1.50 per $1,000 in assessed property value over two years. If passed, the district said the levy could generate about $20 million per year in 2023 and 2024.

Kitsap County Elections reported as of Wednesday that 34.37% of registered voters filled out and returned ballots in the levy election.
