PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - Just under 70 percent of Oregonians cast a ballot in Tuesday’s election.

The Oregon secretary of state’s office says 1.5 million ballots were turned in.

Turnout ranged from a high of 81 percent in Lake County in Southern Oregon to a low of 61 percent in Umatilla County in Eastern Oregon.

The two largest counties, Multnomah and Washington, both had turnout of 67 percent. It was slightly higher in the next largest counties, Clackamas, Lane, Marion and Jackson.

The statewide figure is in line with those from midterm elections in recent decades. Since 1960, eight of the 13 midterms had turnout between 68 and 72 percent.
