What's on the May 2019 Ballot

Local district elections that shape a county that's livable for all of us.

You'll vote only in your home district

Think small. Local elections have a big impact on our daily lives. In May, we’ll elect officials who will shape our basic services and set policy governing public education in our county.

Candidates may file to run for one of the open positions listed below, until March 21.

Are you interested in running for office or do you know someone who is?  The Multnomah County Democrats are actively supporting registered Democrats who align with our values, as expressed in our county party platform.  Contact our Campaign & Candidates Committee by email to begin a conversation.

Which offices you’ll see on your ballot depend on your Multnomah County street address.  To help you find your local offices, we’ve compiled a full list of district elections and open positions below, and where information is available, we’ve added a link to their district website. In addition, here is a link to a Multnomah County District Map so that you can check your own location.  (It will take a full minute for district boundary overlays to render on the web page.)

Thank you for educating yourself about the upcoming elections.  Together we can reclaim our democracy.
