EUGENE, Ore. — Three county commissioner seats are up for re-election, and each of them are contested.
Commissioner Jay Bozievich is running for re-election for Position 1 of west Lane County against one opponent. Commissioner Sid Leiken is running for his second term in office for Position 2 of Springfield, running against two opponents. Commissioner Faye Stewart is running against four other candidates for Position 5 of east Lane County.
“For this election it’s a nominating election, so you have to get the majority of the votes cast to move forward. Unopposed for the general election or the top two vote getters would move forward if they do not get the majority of the vote,” said Cheryl Betschart, Lane County Clerk.
The first round of election results will be released at 8 p.m. Tuesday.
