This fall Portland voters will elect the first Black woman to city council.

Veteran activist Jo Ann Hardesty got 42 percent of the vote in this spring’s primary, and Multnomah County Commissioner Loretta Smith got 22.5 percent – a close enough race to qualify the two candidates for a runoff race in the fall.

Susheela Jayapal, a candidate for Multnomah County Commissioner District 2, running for Smith’s vacated seat, also claimed an historic victory Tuesday as the first south Asian to be elected in the state of Oregon.

This week also saw an upset in the 24th district race for state senator, with former state representative Shemia Fagan unseating incumbent Rod Monroe in a race dominated by debate about the future of housing and renters’ rights in Oregon.

The Skanner News staff compiled the following results from government and wire sources, which were up-to-date as of Wednesday morning. View a full list of statewide election results here. Multnomah County results are here
