You only need to vote once in November and those ballots are counted in a 2 step process:

 

First:   All the scores from all the ballots are totaled and the two highest scoring are finalists.

Second:   Your ballot already shows which finalist you preferred.  The finalist preferred by more voters wins.

We are currently collecting signatures for a ballot initiative to adopt STAR Voting for Multnomah County offices.  The proposal will replace our antiquated "choose one only" system with a single November election with all the candidates on one ballot. STAR Voting breaks the polarization and allows us to give each candidate a score, showing our full honest opinion.

In order to get this on the ballot we need to collect over 23 thousand verified signatures by July 15th. That would get this initiative on the November ballot for the voters to consider and vote in. If the initiative passes it would be implemented by 2020.
