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.
