Slightly more than 30 percent of Multnomah County’s registered voters cast ballots in this spring’s special election. Portland voters cast votes on three ballot measures: a $790 million bond to improve facilities in Portland Public Schools, a measure authorizing the Portland City Council to change the scope of transient lodgings and an initiative to increase the city auditor’s independence from the bodies it audits.

Voters throughout the county also selected new board members to oversee school boards and the board of Portland Community College. The Skanner has compiled the results of the city ballot measures, Portland Public Schools, the Multnomah Education Service District and Portland Community College director positions. For a full list of results, visit the Multnomah County Elections website.
