PORTLAND, Ore. – Voters in Oregon and Washington have decided on a few high-profile candidate positions and some tax measures that will impact homeowners' tax bills.
Here's a look at the results of Tuesday's election.
Note: The Nov. 7 election was not statewide; several communities/districts did not hold elections.
Vancouver Port Commission
Don Orange, who opposes a $210 oil terminal on the Columbia River, won out over Kris Greene, who supports it. Orange received 65 percent of the vote to Greene's 35 percent.
The terminal would receive oil by train, store oil on site then load it onto tankers headed for refineries along the West Coast. The oil industry and environmental groups poured hundreds of thousands of dollars into the race.
Current Vancouver City Councilor Anne McErney-Ogle cruised to victory with 75 percent of the early returns.
Former candidate Steven Cox dropped out of the race in September after making a controversial statement about Vancouver City Councilor Jack Burkman. Two weeks later, Cox fatally shot a suspected prowler in his yard. Cox's name still appeared on the ballot.
Portland Community College Bond
The PCC bond passed, with a 56 percent to 44 percent margin.
Voters in the PCC service area will fund repairs, renovations and modernizations at the community college. The bond would maintain current tax rates for homeowners and cost $0.40 per $1,000 of assessed value each year for 16 years.
Hillsboro School Bond
The bond passed easily, 65 percent to 35 percent.
The Hillsboro School District Board of Directors will receive $408 million for two new elementary schools as well as building renovations, repairs, and safety and security upgrades district-wide. The bond would maintain the current tax rate for homeowners of $2.24 per $1,000 of assessed value.
Sherwood marijuana facilities
The ballot measure to allow recreational pot shops in Sherwood failed, 37 percent to 63 percent.
