Police in Portland have reportedly arrested 112 anti-Donald Trump protesters. We now know over half of them apparently share one thing in common: They didn’t vote in Oregon. In many cases, they didn't vote at all.

Local NBC affiliate KGW-TV compiled a list of names and ages of the people arrested and then compared it to the state’s voter logs.

Here’s what the news investigation uncovered:

Records show 34 of the protesters arrested didn’t return a ballot for the November 8 election. Thirty-five of the demonstrators taken into custody weren’t registered to vote in Oregon.

Twenty-five protesters who were arrested did vote.

KGW is still working to verify voting records for the remaining 17 protesters who were arrested.

While it’s possible some of the 35 arrested protesters who weren’t registered to vote in Oregon may have voted in other states, the data also suggests a percentage of the protesters were outside agitators.

It's also possible the majority of the protesters arrested didn't vote at all in the election they're protesting.
