IF this is a trend, we are in deep doo-doo

In Oregon, Turnout is Down, But Especially in Red Counties

Uniquely among the 50 states, Oregon conducts the entirety of its voting by mail, which among other things can provide early clues as to what the electoral battlefield might look like elsewhere in the country.

Surprisingly, perhaps, turnout is down this year in Oregon. According to statistics compiled by the state's Elections Division, the state has received 522,188 ballots through the first seven days of its early voting window. This compares with 645,473 ballots received during the first seven days of 2004 -- a 19 percent decline.

Isn't Oregon a traditional blue state anyway?

People procrastinate and are very busy this time of year too. Good news is that they have until 8 p.m. on election day to turn in their ballots.
Very Happy

Be careful of that ghey 538 site - it's only been around since last spring, and the owners are a couple of Democrat Party operatives. One of them is actually an old online pal of mine who still posts at dailykos. Rolling Eyes

They are freaking out over the early voting returns so far - looks like their messiah is goin' down. Very Happy

Should've nominated Hillary. Oh, well.
