Police officers in Portland, Oregon, have arrested 112 protesters during violent protests after the election of Donald Trump. Of those 112, 69 either were not registered to vote in Oregon, or did not vote there in the 2016 election, NBC’s KGW TV reports.

Oregon voter “records show 34 of the protesters arrested didn’t return a ballot for the November 8 election,” KGW reports. “Thirty-five of the demonstrators taken into custody weren’t registered to vote in Oregon.”

KGW has yet to confirm the voting status of 17 protesters who were arrested.
