CLACKAMAS COUNTY, Ore. (KPTV) – The Oregon Division of Elections is investigating the owner of a mobile home for possible voter intimidation, the Secretary of State’s office said Tuesday.
October 27 In an emailed complaint, the Elections Division told the owner of a mobile home community in Johnson City, a small community between Milwaukee and Gladstone, that the office had received numerous investigative requests alleging he had violated Oregon election law.
