PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Law enforcement officers in Portland, Oregon are preparing for potential unrest on Election Day and beyond. The Portland Police Bureau, Multnomah County Sheriff's Office, Oregon State Police and the Multnomah County District Attorney held a joint news conference Thursday to say they will cooperate to deal with protests or voter intimidation. Oregon is a universal vote-by-mail state and Sheriff Mike Reese says there are no known external threats to Portland during election week. Portland has been the scene of near nightly racial injustice protests. Right-wing groups have held rallies in Portland to condemn the protests and support President Donald Trump.
