Incumbent Shoreline Fire Commissioner Jon Kennison held a big lead over challenger Kim Fisher in returns from the November 8 general election through Wednesday, November 23.

Kennison had 64 percent of the vote to 36 percent for Fisher after King County officials had counted 51.95 percent of countywide ballots, compared to an expected final countywide turnout of 52 percent.

County officials had 700 uncounted ballots from around the County on hand at the close of business Wednesday at the County elections office inn Renton.  Elections officials still will accept ballots from anyone whose ballots were returned for signature verification through Monday.

Final certification of the election is scheduled for Tuesday.

Of the 18,070 ballots counted in the District, 8,518 had votes for Kennison, 4,784 had votes for Fisher, 45 had write-in votes and 4,723 were blank.

Commissioner David Harris won a full term without opposition. He had held his position by appointment since the Board expanded from three members to five in 2010.

He is a former volunteer fire fighter and a former Shoreline planning commissioner.

Voter turnout in the District was 52.70 percent.

The District has the same boundaries as the City of Shoreline.
