Special Election Results

Pete Springer/OPB

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.

But there are other important issues on ballots across the state. Lane, Josephine, and Curry counties are all considering tax hikes to increase funding for law enforcement. 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.

What election issue are you most invested in? How will the election results affect you?
