Election nuts and bolts for May 16th with Jackson County's clerk

Tuesday's election in Oregon is not an especially big one, but are there any "small" elections anymore? All the races and measures are strictly local, but their results will shape the governing boards of school and fire and special districts, and decide issues like school bonds and more.
