PORTLAND — With 10 of 11 precincts reporting, a measure to have an elected mayor in Portland was ahead 9,277 votes to 8,081 votes.

The city’s charter commission recommended the city’s mayor be elected rather than have the nine councilors select a colleague to do the job. Under the measure, the mayor would have more powers, work full-time, serve four years instead of one, and be elected by ranked-choice voting.

Opponents have argued that a mayor shouldn’t be paid a full-time salary for what they say is still primarily a ceremonial job; or don’t like a voting system they say could be manipulated.
