We voted

We took our ballots to the library yesterday and put them in the ballot slot, so we’ve now voted. Since Oregon is a mail-in ballot state, it’s always easy and safe, and since Barbara went to the library to pick up stuff yesterday, it was convenient too. Yay for us.

    Happy to hear that you voted. It’s critical, and it’s good to hear that Oregon makes it easy and safe.

    We have just been checking out where the best drop box for ballots is, and will be dropping ours off soon.

    • Your library doesn’t have one?

      • tracybham says:

        No, there are only four near us (and they are not that close). One is at the Goleta City Hall which is in the same building that my husband and I used to work in (for a publisher). Another in the Goleta Community Center. One near to UCSB, in Isla Vista. Another one is at a church. There is one at a branch library in Santa Barbara, but it is way on the other side of Santa Barbara. We are between the two cities and Goleta is closer.

    Yeah, we voted by mail too. I wish we had all mail-in voting.
    We only have one week of early voting starting this Saturday.

    Yay to you both! Kitty and I voted this monday, the first day of early voting here. I know mail-in voting is perfectly safe but we were hesitant to do so because…Florida.

    Diane and I voted through Absentee Ballots a couple weeks ago. New York is a Blue State so I’m not concerned about voting “irregularities” that seem to be common in “Swing States.”

  6. We just heard from BallotTrax the our ballots have been received and approved. Thus, when it’s 1 week from Election Day, they will be counted. Cool.

    New York finally started “early” voting yesterday and there were huge lines everywhere. Everyone wants to vote this year. We drove past the local high school where we normally vote, and were very surprised to see the line stretched most of the way around the school.

    On the news this morning, we saw some people lining up at 6:30 to “beat the crowds” even though they don’t open until 10:00! Glad we voted by mail.
