The most high-profile ballot item in this week's special election is no doubt Portland's vote on fluoride, which has been garnering national attention.

Residents of Clackamas County are voting on a measure that could complicate TriMet's Portland-Milwaukie light-rail line. And ten districts across the state are asking voters to increase school funding.
