Voting Early is Voting Green


If you thought the election junk mail was bad...it's only going to get worse between now and election day. By now, Oregon voters should have received your ballots. If you vote right away, the junk mail will stop, as well as the phone calls. Entities sending these things out get voter lists daily, I hear. (Not how you've voted, just, who hasn't voted yet.)

No one came to our scheduled presentation on Ballot Measures 57 and 61. In a nutshell, here's the advice from Partnership for Safety and Justice:

Partnership for Safety and Justice (PSJ) is working hard to defeat the mandatory minimum ballot measure (M61) that Oregonians will vote on in November 2008. This year the election is complicated and the best way to defeat the mandatory minimum ballot measure is to support an alternative, competing measure (M57). We have compiled a wide range of information to help people better understand the crime related ballot measures, their policies, projected impacts, and the politics behind them. You will also find positions that PSJ is taking on other ballot measures, along with plenty of information on how to support our election-related organizing efforts.

If you did not receive your ballot, are you sure you're registered to vote? If you moved, you still should be able to vote...you just have to go to your elections office to get your ballot.
