We just got this good-news update from the Multnomah County Democrats:
Since we put out the call for volunteers this morning, the elections office has registered receiving over fifteen thousand more ballots – we have leapt from ten thousand ballots behind our 2002 returns to five thousand ahead. This shows how important it is to keep up the hard work.
There are still, however, thousands of people in Multnomah County who have not voted. We can only contact them if you are in here volunteering.
Are you going to let the Republican 72-hour plan, which toppled Tom Daschle, erode our future? Come in and show the Republican Party that no matter how many last-minute temp hires they make, no matter how many calls they buy, no matter how many negative ads they run – no matter how much money they have – Oregon is not for sale.
Come in and give us another three hours. Take a day off from work, and use it to call voters. Do what needs to be done. Re-elect Ted Kulongoski.
There are, of course, opportunities to help around the state. A complete list of county party GOTV operations is here.
If you still need to drop off your ballot, get the list of dropsites here.
