We Asked Who You're Voting For—This is What We Learned

Posted By on Wed, Oct 29, 2014 at 4:06 PM

We asked readers which candidates they plan to vote for on Nov. 4. Here's what we learned.

1. There's someone for everyone.

Even in races with multiple minor party candidates (and even though just 100 people have taken the survey), every candidate in every race had at least one supporter. Case in point: the Governor's race, which includes contenders from the Pacific Green, Libertarian, and Constitution parties. (See also: the Senate race.)

 
2. Our readers don't always agree with us (or us with them).

While most of the votes lined up with our endorsements, there was one exception: House District 54. (As you may recall, we endorsed Knute Buehler.)


3. Some races are closer than others.

But when it comes to our readers, each race has a clear winner. The closest race: Bend City Council, Position 6. (The biggest landslide can be seen above, in the Governor's race. A close second: the Senate race.)



4. It's time for a change.

If it were up to our readers (at least the 100 who took the poll) neither of the incumbents would be returning to City Hall.
