Voting is fundamental: Election website is live!

Voting is patriotic
by Andrew McFarlane

If you listen to the radio, or watch tv, or read the papers, or surf the web, you know there is a presidential election this year. It seems to be all the media can talk about.

Does this sound familiar?

  • You'd like to vote, but you're not sure you're registered in Oregon?
  • You still need to register but you're not sure when the deadline is?
  • You're wondering what measures are on the ballot this time?
  • You watch the debates and wonder how both candidates can claim something when you're pretty sure it didn't happen that way?
  • You're not sure where you can drop off your ballot?
  • You're not sure where you can find out election results the evening of November 4th?

WCCLS is looking out for you with its new Election Guide. Whether you're not sure if you qualify to register to vote, want to learn more about the issues on the ballot, get some non-partisan information about candidates and measures, or want to find fact-checking resources, the Election Guide can give you the information you need to be a more informed voter.
