'No' vote in Crocker pushes Quilcene bond measure to defeat | 2022 Special Election

Posted

A majority "no" vote in one precinct doomed the Quilcene School District's $12.3 million bond proposal for a new elementary school, according to a review by The Leader of precinct votes.

The February 2022 Special Election was certified as official Friday.

The final ballots for the February 2022 Special Election were counted Friday morning, Feb. 18, and Quilcene's Proposition 1 fell to defeat with a 59.4 percent "yes" vote, with 40.6 percent voting "no."

The bond measure required a 60 percent supermajority for passage.

The final numbers for the special election, which also included school levies in Brinnon and Port Townsend that voters passed handily, were approved Feb. 17 by the Jefferson County Canvassing Board. 

According to the final tally, a total of 824 voters cast ballots on the Quilcene measure.

With 1,704 voters eligible to cast ballots, turnout for the special election was 48.3 percent.

Prop. 1 earned solid support in one of three precincts for the measure.

In Quilcene Precinct, the vote for Prop. 1 was 66.8 percent in favor.

In Coyle Precinct, the yes vote was 59.9 percent.

In Crocker Precinct, the area that includes Lind and Eaglemount roads on the north end, to south of Lords Lake and Lake Leland, the ballot measure had 54.3 percent in opposition to Prop. 1, and 45.6 percent in favor.
