We thought it was a done deal in 2016, and it wasn’t. Don’t be fooled the same way this year.  And don’t depend on polling places to be open and accessible come November; we don’t know how bad the pandemic will be then.  Apply for your absentee ballot NOW.  Voting is a revolutionary act that does not require bloodshed.  In this country, regime change is ONLY possible at the ballot box, and it is not difficult.

Encourage your voting-age kids, nieces, nephews, neighbors, anyone you speak with, to get their absentee ballot.  We are lucky here in Oregon: all elections are by mail. I don’t have to worry about socially-distanced lines at my polling place, or shortage of poll workers, or transportation, or polling places closing.  I STRONGLY urge you to do the same: vote by mail.  It works fine.  But don’t wait! If you don’t already have vote-by-mail, order your ballot NOW!

Regardless of your party affiliation, I hope you will exercise your civic right, your duty, and make your voice heard.  Democracy only works when we ALL speak up.  

Thank you!
