LANE COUNTY, Ore. - It's Primary Election Night in Oregon, and we're breaking down the local and statewide races that are important to watch with ballots flowing in until 8 p.m. on Tuesday.
Several voters have made their way through the drop boxes, and this election comes at a time when Lane County has a record-high umber of registered voters, with more than 251,000 voters registered.

"Certainly want people to exercise their right to vote and that's an awesome privilege we have," said Betschart. "We'd like to see that voter turnout percentage continue to climb all the way through the end of today."
