The 2016 Portland mayoral election was held on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 to elect the 53rd mayor of Portland, Oregon.[1] Incumbent mayor Charlie Hales did not seek a second term,[2] and the primary race was won by Ted Wheeler, who garnered greater than 50% of the vote.[3][4]

Municipal elections in Oregon are non-partisan. The non-partisan primary was held on May 17, 2016. If a candidate receives a majority of the vote in the primary, he or she will be declared elected and no election will be held in November. If no candidate received a majority, the two candidates with the greatest number of votes compete in the November runoff.[5]

Fifteen candidates appeared on the primary ballot; those deemed "viable" by Oregonian reporter Brad Schmidt, and who were named in a December 2015 poll, are Jules Bailey and Ted Wheeler.[6][7]

The deadline for withdrawing from the race was March 11, 2016.[36] Incumbent mayor Charlie Hales was widely seen as the frontrunner in the election, announcing his bid for reelection in March 2015.[37][38] 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.[2][39][40][41]
