More at stake than just the White House

Photos and Story by

Today’s Oregonian contains the newspaper’s editorial position on the PCC bond measure. You can find it on page B6.

Also, ballots get mailed out at the end of this week. Some of you could find them in your mailboxes as early as Saturday. Others will find them on Monday or possibly Tuesday.

Please remind your friends and family to vote the whole ballot! With all these newly minted voters, invigorated by the battle between Sens. McCain and Obama, I’m fearful that many voters will pick their guy for the White House, seal the envelop, lick the stamp and be done with it.

There are many, many important races on this year’s ballot. That includes statewide offices such as secretary of state and treasurer, plus a U.S. Senate race that is much closer than many of us predicted. There are races for the state Legislature. There are county and city issues. There are bond measures (ahem…). And an array of initiatives. They each are important in their own way. Vote the whole ballot.

And remember: Tomorrow is the last day to register to vote in the November election.
