As of Tuesday, January 23, 2018
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 www.hoodrivernews.com 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.
