As politics in Washington, DC have become increasingly partisan and dysfunctional, one county in Oregon could potentially move the opposite direction.   

On Election Day, November 5th, residents of Lincoln County will decide whether to change the way they elect their county commissioners.  

Currently commissioners in Lincoln County run partisan races – meaning they declare their candidacy as a Republican, Democrat or another political party.  If challenged within that party, they go through primary elections, and then move to the general ballot.
