County Commissioner Contest Undervote by Region

image008

The highest under votes were in the East Lane district.

Under votes are generally negatively correlated with the amount of information voters have.

A typical under vote for this type of election in Oregon is not more than ten percent. Given the election was a low turnout primary one would expect a lower under vote, perhaps seven or eight percent.

Districts are ordered by district number, thus West Lane = #1, Springfield = #2, and East Lane = #5.
