Only 16% voter turn-out in this election, GOP edges ahead

By Taxpayer Association of Oregon

As of Friday May 11th, only 16.1% of statewide ballots have been collected. Among the leading political parties in Oregon in this extreme low-voter turn-out the Republican Party has a slight 2% edge over turn-out than the Democratic Party.

Here is the Friday breakdown so far.

Republican……… 22.5% (157,539)
Democrat……….. 20.5% (196,356)
Independent……. 13.5% (16,347)
Non-Affiliated…..6.6% (54,351)

This means that many non-partisan races are up for grabs and could be decided by the smallest numbers of votes compared to other elections.
