Vooooooooooooooooote…..

It’s almost that time and in Oregon since we do it by mail. You’ll start seeing your ballots show up in your mail box. I know you’re probably tired of seeing the political ads already on TV but we’ve got another month or so. So hang on, hunker down and VOTE!

If you’re in Oregon, there’s still time to register, here’s the Secretary of State timeline for this election…

August 24 voters’ pamphlet filing deadline
September 18 ballots mailed to long-term absent voters (overseas and military)
October 4 ballots mailed to out-of-state voters
October 6-8 voters’ pamphlet delivered to households
October 12 voter registration deadline
October 15-19 ballots mailed to voters other than long-term and out-of-state voters
November 2 election day
December 2 certification of election results

I don’t care about your political persuasion. Your voice is important, even if it’s just one.

  1. “He looks presidential.”
    “I vote my party.”
    “His name sounded nice.”

    I have heard these reasons and worse for votes. I am not a fan of “Get Out And Vote” drives. Why talk or guilt someone into voting who won’t look beyond the party and the ads? I want people who will take the time to do at least a sliver of research to form an opinion. I vote on the issues I understand and have an opinion on. Otherwise I am just flipping a coin hoping I get lucky.

    How often on “Jaywalking” or Man on the Street interview can people not name the Vice President. I am in no rush to convince them to vote.

    • I am.

      For no other reason than – It’s what separates us from many countries in the world. Educated or Uneducated, Rich or Poor, Right or left, Masters degree or school of hard knocks, it’s your right as a citizen.

      My hope is that someone will take the time to dig a little deeper, but if you don’t, you still get a say. Even if your reason is only the color of their shirt.
