22 ballots still remain in the balance

Remaining ballots could theoretically swing the vote, although it seem unlikely

With updates coming in the afternoon on May 23 and May 25, the Clackamas County Clerk's Office has acknowledged that of the 430 "problem ballots" in Clackamas County, 22 are from the Estacada Rural Fire District.

While Measure 3-400, which would fund a new fire station, currently has 13 more "No" votes than "Yes" votes, the 22 outstanding ballots could theoretically swing the vote.

All 22 voters have been reached out to by the county and they have until May 25 to go into the county office to correct their ballot. Many of the "problem ballots" are unsigned or have a signature that cannot be verified.
