PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — Special elections for school boards and tax measures dotted the Oregon ballot in May 2021. Each election was local in nature and none had statewide implications.
Polls closed at 8 p.m. Election results were posted online soon after the polls close.
In Multnomah County, the school board race drew a fair amount of attention, as did the race in Beaverton.
In Portland, Julia Brim-Edwards, Herman Greene and Gary Hollands earned spots on the school board.
In Beaverton, incumbent Susan Greenberg easily turned back a school board challenge from controversial candidate Jeanette Schade.
There were also races in Multnomah County for the boards for both Mt. Hood Community College and Portland Community College.
And in Multnomah County, voters renewed a levy for the Oregon Historical Society.
In a statement, Executive Director Kerry Tymchuk said, “Tonight, voters overwhelmingly showed their support for preserving and sharing Oregon’s history and passed Measure 26-221, ensuring Oregon Historical Society’s vital education and preservation work continues — work that persisted during the past year, when examining our history and recording the present moment was more critical than ever.”
