Tomorrow is Election Day. If your ballot isn't in, it must be placed into a drop box by 8 p.m. Tuesday night to count. Deschutes County turnout so far is less than one in five voters casting a ballot. But Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship says this election does not require at least 50% of all voters for measures to pass:
“We've gotten a few questions, this ballot does not require a double majority. It does not. The only election that requires a double majority is an election in September or March.” The Bend Transportation issue on the ballot would cost taxpayers 27 cents per $1000 of assessed value. It would go toward road improvement.
