Portland voters have had ballots in hand for a week now - and along with charter reform - will be voting on four school board seats. Two have unopposed incumbents (Bobbie Regan and Dilafruz Williams), while two incumbents face strong challengers.

One bit of wacky trivia for non-Portlanders and new-in-town folks: Though PPS Board members live in and represent particular districts, they all run city-wide and all voters get to vote in all races.
