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

The majority of the anti-Donald Trump protesters-69 in all-who were arrested in Portland, Oregon, didn't vote in the 2016 election or weren't registered to vote in the state of Oregon, local broadcaster KGW-TV reported on Monday. At least one of the daily Portland protests has been termed a riot by police. The bulk of the arrests happened on Friday and Saturday evenings as protesters faced off against police. Those names and ages, provided by police, were then compared to state voter logs by Multnomah County Elections officials.

It is unclear if those protesters who were not registered to vote in OR were registered in another state.

Of the 36 voters who weren't registered, most gave an OR address as their official place of residence, making it unlikely that they voted in another state.

Not all votes have yet been counted in the presidential contest, which has Clinton winning the popular vote but Trump victorious in the Electoral College.

The records showed that 25 of the protesters arrested did vote in the election, while voting records for 17 others could not be confirmed.

It is unclear if those who aren't registered in OR are registered to vote in other states.

Of the 112 arrestees, four were ineligible to vote because they were under the age of 18. She received an OR ballot by mail but did not use it to vote, the local network reported.
