Ballots for the Measure 101 Special Election are due at 8 p.m. Jan. 23.

Results, which will be available after press time, will be published online at and in the Saturday, Jan. 27 print edition of the Hood River News.

A total of 36.34 percent of ballots have been returned as of 9 a.m. Tuesday, Elections Supervisor Kim Kean said.

Ballots yet to be cast should be hand-delivered to drop boxes at the County Building at Sixth and State, or to Cascade Locks City Hall.

Voters are reminded to sign your ballot envelope — and only the one for your ballot — otherwise it might not count. Tips from the county: "Do not mail the ballots; postmarks do not count and sign the envelope."

The public is asked to rule on proposed Measure 101, which would temporarily help fund Medicaid in Oregon by a fee charged to hospitals and other providers and insurance companies through July 2019.
