COLA volunteers actively participated in this election and the data confirms what many of us observed during the final weeks of the race.
We had our analysts review the data to summarize it for the community:
- Clackamas county had a 83.9% participation rate. However R voters participated at 88.3% while D voters were at 86.8% Non Affiliated voters trailed both parties at 72.9%
- House District 38 which is mostly LO and Southwest Portland had very similar results. Total at 88.4% with R 91.3%, D 90.5, and Non affiliated at 81.4%
- Senate District 19 which includes Tualatain, LO , West Linn, and Southwest Portland had very similar results. Total at 87.6% with R 90.8%, D 89.9, and Non affiliated at 79.6%
While not all details on the participation rate for Lake Oswego have been released we do know that the participation rate was 88.3% in total or almost 5% higher than the rate for Clackamas County.
Its likely that the trends will be even higher for Lake Oswego in terms of very high partisan turnout and non affiliated voters trailing the partisan voters but with less of a margin as compared to the county.
