I voted today. For those who don’t know, everybody in Oregon votes by mail. They sent me my ballot a week or two ago. I filled it out yesterday and mailed it today. Last election, I forgot until too late to mail the ballot and had to drop it off at a collection center on election day.

The election, I voted a straight Democratic ticket. For the House, I voted for the incumbent. For the State House, I didn’t even have a choice. I wasn’t sure about Kulongoski for governor since he hasn’t been impressive and the Republican Ron Saxton sounds like a moderate. But I’ll take a boring D over an moderate R. I voted no on all but one of the propositions, the prescription drug benefit. The rest sounded dubious or bad (like the parental notification for abortions) and I always vote no on propositions if uncertain.
