MEDFORD, Ore. — Voters will begin to weigh in today on this election's measures and candidates. Keep in mind it is the primary election, so candidates for county sheriff's will have to win their election in November.

Jackson County

Voters are deciding to fund Medford school trade programs. If the bond measure passes, the additional cost would be approximately $0.12 increase per $1,000 of assessed value over the current bond costs. The result would be an increase from $1.57 to $1.69 per $1000 of taxable property value. For a house assessed at a property value of $265,000, the additional cost would be $32 per year.

Voters are weighing in on Jackson County Commissioner Position 1 candidates: Republican Rick Dyer and Democrat Amy Thuren.
Voters are also deciding the Jackson County Commissioner Position 3 candidates: Republican Colleen Roberts and Democrat Lanita C
Witt.

Josephine County

Voters are deciding if they want to renovate school buildings. The Grants Pass School District is asking voters to pass a $138.7 million bond to fix both North and South Middle Schools. It's a property tax. For every $1,000 you pay for your home, you'd pay $1.95 in a tax. So if your home is $200,000 for example, you'd pay $380 a year for 30 years.

Voters are weighing in on one commissioner position between the following candidates: Ken Hannum, Mayana Kingery, Ron Smith,
Donald F. Myrick, Jr., Pete Gendron, Tripp Androy, Darin Fowler, and James Rafferty.

Curry County

Voters are deciding if they want to re-authorize a local gas tax. The tax is $0.04 per gallon. The city of Brookings raised $282,000 in gas taxes in its first full year of collections. The money is set to be used to repair and maintain city roads. If passed, the tax will sunset on June 30th, 2020.

Klamath County

In Klamath County, residents will vote on a five-year property tax. Voters will decide if the district will impose a levy of $0.26 per $1,000 for five years, for future replacement savings, beginning in FY2018-2019. It would fund local fire and emergency operations.
If passed, it could increase taxes by more than 3%.

Lake County

Voters are deciding on two commissioner positions.

For the Commissioner's Position 3: Ken Kestner (incumbent) is running against Mark Albertson
For the Commissioner's Position 2: Commissioner Dan Shoun opted to retire, Charles Brown, Michael Stettler, James Williams and Bruce Webbon are running for his seat.
Lynn Findley is running for State Representative, 60th District.
Cliff Bentz is running for State Senator, 30th District.
Darryl Anderson is running for County Surveyor.
