Oregon Election 2012: Barack Obama Poised To Defeat Romney (LIVE UPDATES)

What Obama Has To Do To Beat Mitt Romney

Barack Obama looks poised to win 7 electoral votes over Mitt Romney in the Oregon election on Tuesday.

Though the Presidential contest won't produce any surprises in the Beaver state, Oregon could become one of the first states in the nation to legalize recreational use of marijuana. A number of down-ticket races remain competitive, including the race for Secretary of State.

Oregon's polls are open between 7:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
