Oregonians Facing Deadline to Mail Ballots


For all intents and purposes, voting in Oregon has concluded. According to the Associated Press, the Oregon Secretary of State's office says today is the last day for Oregonians to put ballots in the mail if they want them to arrive in time for Tuesday's election. Ballots must be received in election offices by 8 p.m. on Nov. 4, to be counted.

Oregon voters are considering a number of interesting proposals this election cycle:
  • The creation of a first-of-its kind endowment to boost financial aid for college students.
  • The legalization of recreational marijuana.
  • The requirement of labeling foods made with genetically modified ingredients (GMOs).
  • Allowing driver cards to be issued to Oregon residents without requiring proof of legal residency in the United States.
  • Allowing a "top-two" primary: the top two candidates from a primary election advance to a general election ballot.
