During Tuesday's midterm elections, Oregon voters decided on several significant local races and state measures.
Democrats gained a majority in the U.S. House. What that means.
Here are some of the major races, including links to the results.
Oregon voters have elected Democrat Kate Brown to serve her first full term as governor.
Brown defeated Republican challenger Knute Buehler, a lawmaker from Bend, who was seeking to become the first elected Republican governor of Oregon since Victor Atiyeh won the 1982 gubernatorial race.
Measure 102 is projected to pass. The measure will insert an exception into the Oregon Constitution that eases the way for local governments to issue bond measures that essentially help nongovernmental entities pay to build affordable housing.
Measure 103 is projected to fail. The measure would have changed Oregon’s constitution to prohibit food and most beverages from being taxed.
Measure 104 is projected to fail. It would have expand the current requirement that a three-fifths majority of the legislature is needed to approve bills that raise money.
Measure 105 is projected to fail, meaning Oregon's sanctuary state status remains in place. If passed, Measure 105 would have repealed Oregon’s law that limits how local law enforcement cooperates with federal authorities who are working to apprehend people in violation of immigration laws.
Measure 106 is projected to fail. The measure would have blocked public funding for abortions except when medically necessary.
Portland City Commissioner
Portland voters chose community organizer Jo Ann Hardesty to join the Portland city council.
Hardesty defeated Loretta Smith, and will be the first black woman to serve on the council, which now has a female majority.
Metro Measure 26-199: Affordable housing bond
Measure 26-199 is projected to pass. The measure calls for an affordable housing bond that would impact people living in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties. The measure authorize nearly $653 million in general obligation bonds. The money will be used to build affordable housing for low-income residents and families, seniors, veterans, and people with disabilities. It also preserves the affordability of existing housing and buy land for more affordable housing. The measure will cost the average homeowner about $60 per year.
Washington 3rd Congressional District
After a day of waiting, Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler defeated Democrat Carolyn Long in Washington's 3rd Congressional District race.
Herrera Beutler was first elected to the district in 2010, and she won her last two elections with more than 60 percent of the vote. While Long, a political science professor at Washington State University's campus in Vancouver, challenged Herrera Beutler, the Associated Press called the race Wednesday night with Herrera Beutler receiving 53 percent of the vote. Long also conceded the race on Wednesday night.
