More than 60 percent of those arrested in Portland for protesting against Donald Trump's election did not even vote in Oregon.

KGW-TV in Oregon reports that at least 69 of the 112 busted by Portland police either didn't turn in a ballot or were not even registered to vote in the state. The television station said it compiled a list of those arrested and then compared it to the state voter records.

The Portland NBC affiliate discovered:

  • Thirty-four of the protesters arrested didn't return a ballot in the presidential election.
  • Thirty-five were not registered to vote in Oregon.
  • Twenty-five demonstrators taken into custody did vote.

KGW was still trying to determine the voting records of the remaining protesters who were arrested.

USA Today reports that downtown Portland was the scene of a protest on Saturday that turned into a riot.

The newspaper said protesters blocked roads, threw bottles at police and dragged metal barricades onto train tracks.
