Live Election Night Coverage

Tonight is election night and while it may seem fairly quiet, there are plenty of interesting local races going on around the state. The two most-watched races are probably for Attorney General and Portland mayor — both close races according to recent polls.  Voters in Eugene are deciding between an incumbent mayor and two challengers and there are some hotly contested commissioner seats in both Lane and Clackamas counties. Three candidates are also vying to be the newest Oregon Supreme Court Justice. There are even a couple of incumbent legislators facing challengers from their own party.

We’ll follow these and many other races as results roll in tonight. Tune in to the radio or live stream at 8 p.m and follow us on Twitter @thinkoutloudopb.
