Scope and content

A recording of the preliminary abstract of votes given for the November 9, 1857 Territory of Oregon special election for constitutional ratification. Ballots included votes for the ratification of the proposed Oregon constitution as well as for and against slavery and the presence of free-blacks in the state. Included in the document are detailed voting breakdowns for voting precincts in Multnomah, Washington, and Clackamas Counties as well as county-wide totals on each issue for the entire state. A listing of those voting for slavery in the Sauvies Island Precinct (today Sauvie Island) is noted at the top of page one. The author and provenance for this document are unknown but results roughly correspond with the reported final results for the election.
