The 1996 United States presidential election in Oregon took place on November 5, 1996, as part of the 1996 United States presidential election. Voters chose seven representatives, or electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Oregon was won by President Bill Clinton ( D) over Senator Bob Dole ( R- Kansas), with Clinton winning 47.2 percent to 39.1 percent for a margin of 8.1 percent. Billionaire businessman Ross Perot ( Reform- Texas) finished in third, with 8.8 percent of the popular vote. [1]

Oregon was one of thirteen states where, on the election ballot, James Campbell of California, Perot’s former boss at IBM, was listed as a stand-in candidate for vice president. [2]

As of the 2016 presidential election, this is the last occasion when the Democratic Party candidate has carried Gilliam, Morrow and Coos Counties. [3] It is the only occasion since 1968 when Gilliam County has voted for a Democrat.
