The 2016 Portland mayoral election was held on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 to elect the 53rd mayor of Portland, Oregon.[2] Incumbent mayor Charlie Hales did not seek a second term,[3] and the primary race was won by Ted Wheeler, who garnered greater than 54% of the vote. Jules Bailey was the runner-up to Wheeler, only receiving 16% of the vote.[1][4][5]

Municipal elections in Oregon are non-partisan. The non-partisan primary was held on May 17, 2016, with a November 8 runoff scheduled in the event that no candidate received a simple majority.[6]

Fifteen candidates appeared on the primary ballot; those deemed "viable" by Oregonian reporter Brad Schmidt, and who were named in a December 2015 poll, were Jules Bailey and Ted Wheeler.[7][8]

Candidates[edit]

Declined to run[edit]

Withdrawn[edit]

The deadline for withdrawing from the race was March 11, 2016.[37] Incumbent mayor Charlie Hales was widely seen as the frontrunner in the election, announcing his bid for reelection in March 2015.[38][39] In an unexpected move in October 2015, however, Hales announced he would drop his reelection bid and focus on running the city during his final year in office.[3][40][41][42]
