BEND, OR -- As of Tuesday morning, about 23% of Oregon voters had returned ballots for the May primary. Local turnout is slightly higher, with Crook County turnout at about 30% and Deschutes County at just over 28%. About a quarter of the Jefferson County ballots were in, as of early Tuesday.  


In May 2014 - the last primary in a non-presidential election year - Deschutes County turnout was just under 39%; it was 36% statewide, that year. 
Ballots are due by 8 p.m. Tuesday and postmarks don’t count. A list of drop-off sites can be found in the voters guide, or click HERE for Deschutes County locations and HERE for Jefferson County's drop sites. 
After 8 p.m., Oregon's Secretary of State will post results HERE, as they become available. KBND News will have reaction from winning local and statewide candidates Wednesday morning on the KBND Morning News.
