Voter turnout stands at just over 50 percent, with 5,782 of the 11,700 ballots turned in to County Elections as of Friday morning.
Balloting continues in the Nov. 6 General Election until 8 p.m. Nov. 6.
All votes must be in the hands of the County Elections department by that time — postmarks do not count.
Voters are reminded to make sure you sign your ballot envelope, and only the one with your name on it.
Oct. 31 was the last day voters could mail in their ballot, with any assurance it will arrive at the county in time to be counted Tuesday.
At this point, voters who have not cast ballots need to deliver them to the County Building, 601 State St., or Cascade Locks City Hall.
Through Tuesday, parking is restricted on State Street. Spaces in front of the county building are reserved for people dropping off their ballots.
