Fire commissioners race too close to call

In primary ballot voting designed to reduce the number of commissioners on the board of Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue, voters Tuesday apparently chose incumbent Ralph Rogers as one candidate on the November General Ballot. They were undecided on who Rogers' opponent would be Nov. 4. Graham Kent and Robert Miller were within 400 votes of each other for second place. The two high finishers in Tuesday's primary will face each other in November and the winner there earns a term as a CKFR commissioner. All three candidates are incumbent CKFR commissioners.

In balloting results released Tuesday night by Kitsap County Elections Department officials, here are the latest results:

Ralph Rogers - 4,263 votes (37.8 percent)

Graham Kent - 3,179 votes (28.2 percent)

Robert Miller - 3,556 votes (31.6 percent).
