Measure 101 ballots are due by 8 p.m. Tuesday.

The measure asks Oregon voters to affirm or overturn more than $300 million in new, temporary taxes on hospitals and other health care providers over the next two years that were approved by the state Legislature.

Proponents have argued the money is needed to avoid up to 350,000 low-income residents potentially losing health care. Opponents claim the additional revenue is an unnecessary and unfair tax that could be funneled to things besides Medicaid.

Ballot drop sites include the Clatsop County Clerk’s Office at 820 Exchange St., Cannon Beach City Hall at 163 E. Gower Ave., Gearhart City Hall at 698 Pacific Way, Seaside City Hall at 989 Broadway, Warrenton City Hall at 225 S. Main Ave., and Knappa High School at 41535 Old Highway 30.
