The Eugene City Council voted 5 to 3 Wednesday not to build its new City Hall to withstand a major Cascadia Subduction Zone earthquake. The plan is to build it to the minimum required under state law.

But now that the primary is suddenly relevant, a lot of people find themselves confused about how the process works.
