Election Day is Near!
Election day is a little more than a week away, and I have to admit, I haven't even opened my ballot or my voters pamphlet. I will, though! Like a lot of Oregonians, I am a last minute voter. All ballots must be in by 8:00pm on May 15th. Make sure to mail them early, or drop them off at a designated ballot box. You can find a list of drop off boxes here
, along with a link to the state voters pamphlet. There are a lot of local races, but this is also Oregon's presidential primary election. Newt Gingrich is still on the ballot, even though he announced this week he is suspending his campaign. A lot of people are running unopposed, or only one party has stepped up to fill a seat, so it's going to be an interesting day on Tuesday, May 16th, when the results are announced. Of course, you can hear them all on Portland's Morning News
