Portland Community College sought $185 million in bonds to make safety and technology improvements and add child care space.

Late Tuesday night, about 57 percent of voters were supporting the measure.

And it looks like Hillsboro gets its $408 million construction bonds to build new schools and improve aging ones. About two-thirds of voters were supporting the measure.

And the next Port of Vancouver commissioner could cast a tie-breaking vote over a proposed oil-by-oil rail terminal.

In the race for District One, Don Orange has a commanding lead over Kris Greene, 65 percent to 35 percent.

Orange is against the $210 million terminal. He says he would work to end the project’s lease with the Port.

Greene supports the terminal.

Donors on both sides of the debate have been pouring outside money into the race.
