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

Which offices you see on your ballot depends on your Multnomah County street address.

We’ve compiled a list of all of the Democrats running for school board for your reference.

If you want to double check the boundaries of the school district or MHCC zone you live in, you can look them up on the Multnomah County District Map; it may take up to a full minute for district boundary overlays to render on the web page. To find zone details for your voting address:

  • enter your address in the search bar provided
  • click the “…” button on the address pop-up menu
  • select “add a marker”
  • click the forward arrow on the pop-up menu to see your address details

Every vote is going to count in this election, so your vote will matter. Make a difference for public education.  Be a voter!

We are focusing extra effort on six zones in East County where electing Democrats can make a very big impact on the quality of public education. The Democratic candidates in the East County districts of Parkrose, Reynolds, Gresham-Barlow and Mt. Hood Community College are running in tight races. If you live in one of these zones, your vote will matter a lot.

You can also volunteer to make an even bigger impact! The Multnomah County Democrats have created slate cards that list the Democratic candidates in each of those contested seats.  With your help, these printed cards reach voters who may not visit our website, or use social media.  You can sign up through the MultDems to “drop slate” at addresses in these zones. Here is a list of those slate cards:

  1. Gresham-Barlow + MHCC Zone 5 📄
  2. Reynolds + MHCC Zone 3  📄
  3. Reynolds + MHCC Zone 5 📄
  4. Parkrose + MHCC Zone 3 📄
  5. Reynolds + MHCC At Large  📄
  6. Gresham-Barlow + MHCC At Large  📄

If you will make time to pick up a stack of slate cards from the East County Rising offices at 18210 East Burnside Street, Ste E, Portland, OR and then distribute them to a set of addresses in one of the contested districts, you will be a 2019 Get Out The Vote Hero! Sign up to be a special election volunteer!

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.

We call on voters and volunteers to step up to help Democrats win in these districts, so that we can support their fight for sound education, racial equity education and more.

Thank you for educating yourself about the upcoming elections.  Be a voter!  Be a volunteer!  Together we can reclaim our democracy.
