Eugene City Council Ward One race is the only contested race for Eugene’s eight-person City Council in the 2016 General Election.

The race for the Third Senate District in southern Oregon was triggered by the sudden death in August of Dr. Alan Bates. Bates, a Democrat, was widely respected, especially for his work on health care issues.
