More than half of arrested anti-Trump protesters didn't vote

Portland, Ore.—More than half of the anti-Trump protesters arrested in Portland didn’t vote, according to state election records. 

At least seventy demonstrators either didn’t turn in a ballot or weren’t registered to vote.

KGW compiled a list of the 112 people arrested by the Portland Police Bureau during recent protests. Those names and ages, provided by police, were then compared to state voter logs by Multnomah County Elections officials.

Records show 35 of the protesters arrested didn’t return a ballot for the November 8 election. Thirty-five of the demonstrators taken into custody weren’t registered to vote. 

Twenty-five protesters who were arrested did vote.

KGW is still working to verify voting records for the remaining 17 protesters who were arrested.
