Ballot snafu delays results in Oregon election

Primaries in a key competitive congressional district in Oregon have yet to be decided more than a week after voting ended because of a hangup over misprinted ballots.

More than half of the ballots in Oregon's third-most populous county have to be reprocessed because smudged barcodes rendered them unreadable by tabulating machines. The snafu has impacted tens of thousands of ballots in Clackamas County, and it's left the Democratic primary for Oregon's 5th Congressional District in limbo.

In that contest, centrist incumbent Rep. Kurt Schrader significantly trails his more progressive opponent, Jamie McLeod-Skinner. As of 3 p.m. PT Thursday, McLeod-Skinner leads Schrader 58% to 42%, according to The Associated Press. (On the GOP side, Lori Chavez-DeRemer has declared victory; the AP hasn't called the race.)
