Yamhill County, Oregon; May 19, 2020 Primary Election; 5/19/2020:

Yamhill County Commissioner, Position 2 - Nonpartisan - 4 Year Term - Vote for One
Election Results:

Ballots: 32,808
Registered Voters: 70,943
Percent: 46.25%

Lindsay Berschauer: Votes:16,070: Percent of votes: 52.25%

Why do you report that: "Berschauer was elected in 2020, with a voter turnout of 62%"
Please explain or print a correction in the nex paper.

Also it appears that the ..."mailers were sent out shortly before the election, attacking the character of her primary opponent,..." had nothing to do with her win.

Curiously missing from this article is anything positive about Ms Bershauer. Sounds like it could have been written by her opponents.
I miss the good old days when the NR reporting was more objective and even handed.


Joel, this alleged newspaper has been listing to port for years. If they could spin the sports, they'd do that as well.


Joel, it was written by her opponents.


A little over half the residents of Yamhill County didn't learn the lesson that you're known by the company you keep.

P.S. if you're looking for propaganda to support your opinions, you can easily find that elsewhere.

It appears a reporter picked up the wrong 2020 voter turnout number from the top of those election results tabulations -- not seeing that the 62% involved party turnout in one of the presidential primaries that year. The voter turnout for the county commission election was, as Don notes, 46.25%.


The forest was shrinking
but the trees kept
voting for the axe.
For the axe was clever
and convinced the trees
that because his handle was wood
he was one of them.

I happen to think she is doing a great job
