The top two candidates will face off at the November general election if no one receives more than 50% of the vote.

Incumbent Chloe Eudaly has 30% of the vote, while activist Mingus Mapps has 29% and former Mayor Sam Adams has 28%. Fewer than 2,000 votes separate Mingus and Adams.

If no candidate receives more tnan 50% of the vote, the top two candidates will face off in a runoff at the November general election.

Eudaly was elected to the council in 2016. She finished second behind incumbant Commissioner Steve Novick in the May primary election, where no candidate received more than 50% of the vote. Eudlay then defeated Novick in the runoff, which was held during the November general election.

During her first term, Eudaly established a reputation as an effective advocate for renters but angered many neighborhood activists by proposing controversial reforms to Portland's well-established neighorhood association system.

Eight candidates filed for the position in addition to Eudaly. Four qualified for the city's Open & Accountable public campaign finance system: Eudaly, Mapps, Adams and Seth Woolley.
