Of the 112 protesters arrested, 69 of them were not registered in Oregon. It may be that some of them came across the river to protest - Vancouver, WA is a little cheaper than Portland - but I doubt it accounts for that many of them.
So, what exactly are those 69 protesting?
They are all protesting the election of a Republican in a state that has faithfully voted Democrat for as long as I can remember. So yeah, go figure.
It's a short hop from Vanouver to Portland, so it's likely many of those protesters who decided to join the party are from Vancouver. It's also likely many of those 69 not registered to vote in Oregon were not registered to vote anywhere else.
I say 'party' because they don't look particularly upset, and most of them seem to be enjoying themselves.
