Oregon 2008 State Treasurer Contest by County


This post continues a series of posts on the 2008 “low information” partisan contest results in Oregon: Secretary of State and State Treasurer. “Low information” contests are those where, in general, the voter only has minimal “cues” about the candidates. These “cues” include political party and gender.

The last post showed how Rick Dancer (R) was able to break out of the mold in the Eugene TV market.

On the other hand, the Allen Alley (R) vs. Ben Westlund (D) contest was much more commonplace. Throughout the state, both candidates did just as one would expect, given their partisan labels.

Source of data: Oregon Secretary of State.
