2020 Primary Election Results for Oregon

Especially during these extraordinary circumstances with restrictions on public gatherings and our public libraries closed, Oregon is most fortunate to have a mail-in ballot system.

LWVCC Shares Links to Candidate Interviews & Debates

During this time of social distancing and restrictions on public gatherings, the LWVCC employed different methods to provide impartial information to voters prior to the May Primary Election.  Instead of live public Candidate forums, the League offered recorded interviews through Zoom, and video recorded debates (when possible) without an audience.

May 2020

Primary Candidates for US House of Representatives, District 4 - interviews are still available
      • Democratic Candidates - Doyle Canning 0 to 34:50;  Peter DeFazio - 34:54 to 1:11
      • Republican Candidate - Nelson Ijih 1:12 to 1:46; Alex Skarlatos did not respond to the invitation for an interview.
Interviews were conducted for these candidates as a date to get all candidates rescheduled was not possible after the Stay-at-Home orders from Gov. Brown mandated cancelling the traditional Candidate Forum on April 3rd.
 
Primary Candidate for Oregon's House Representative, District  9 - interview still available
      • Democratic Candidate - Cal Mukumoto; Mark Dailey was unavailable
As above this interview was conducted as the 2nd candidate was not able to reschedule.

      • Edward Rosendo Cordova, Katy Eymann, Pam Lewis, Robert (Bob) Main, and Sam Schwarz
 The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization with a mission to encourage the active and informed participation of citizens in government. The League never supports or opposes any candidate or political party and aims to provide impartial information to voters about candidates' view on issues, and to stimulate interest and participation in the election.
