The primary for mayor is May 17. We have quite a few candidates - 15. Ballots start to be mailed to Oregon residents April 27.
The May election turnout will be influenced by presidential primary turnout.
If one candidate for mayor receives a majority >50% in May, they will assume the position January 1, creating a mega lame duck situation.
If no one receives >50%, the top two mayoral primary candidates will advance to the November election.
I'm nonplussed with my options. You?
