I voted for Barack Obama

Vote for Barack Obama
The Oregon Primary Election ends on May 20th. Don’t forget to vote. If you vote by mail make sure you use a 42 cent stamp.

The Oregonian has some sweet sets of photos from Obama’s latest visit to Oregon.

Barack Obama in Oregon

I remember when I was a kid that my parents would not tell me who they voted for. I never understood the reason for the secrecy that surrounded voting… I’m glad that I voted for Barack Obama in the Oregon primary. It’s the second time that I have voted for him. The first was when he was running for the U.S. Senate in Illinois.

The third time that I will vote for Barack Obama is when he is on the nationwide elections ballot for President of the United States.

    The Stamp Cost Increase and What It Means For Oregon Elections

    The Secretary of State’s office has received numerous questions from media and voters about what the increase in the price of stamps will mean for the upcoming election. Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions we’ve received:

    Will ballots be returned to voters if they’ve affixed a 41 cent stamp after May 12, when the cost of a stamp goes up to 42 cents?
    No. Oregon counties have directed their post offices to deliver the ballots without delay, even if they are a penny short.

    Aren’t some counties requiring higher postage?
    Yes. Some counties have larger ballots, which require more than a 41/42 cent stamp. Those counties have described those postage requirements in the voter instruction letter that is mailed in the ballot. Refer to your ballot or county office for more information.
    Has the price of stamps ever gone up during an Oregon election before?
    No, and sadly, the federal government didn’t consult Oregon’s election calendar when deciding on their timeline.

    What if I don’t want to pay for a stamp at all?

    You can always deliver your ballot in person to your county elections office, or at any of your county’s drop sites. For a list of county elections office, click here: http://www.sos.state.or.us/elections/other.info/clerk.htm

  2. yahoo–glad to know you voted for Obama in Oregon Eric–I can’t wait until the day when he actually is our President!

  3. Well, at least we know one person to blame when Obama damages our healthcare system, raises our taxes, and weakens our national security. Unfortunately, the GOP option is not much better as he is only slightly less liberal. What a depressing time for the future of freedom and limited government in this country.

    The real hope is that a taste of Obama-brand “hope” will wake this country up (yet again) to what the left has to offer and reminds them of why liberalism and its sometimes dangerous ideas have to be actively fought. Obama has a lot of the swing voters and moderates fooled but they are in for a sad dose of reality come January 21, 2009 when they realize that they have only elected an ultra-liberal Democrat and not the candidate that Obama was packaged to be.

  4. Cheers! I happily voted for Obama as well. I’ve never missed an election in my almost 20 years of voting (yikes), but this is the very first time I have voted for a candidate without any hesitation, as opposed to voting against a particular candidate or choosing the lesser of two evils. I took my teenager out of school to go to the Albany town hall, expecting that Obama would say something that might give me pause. It wouldn’t have changed my mind, but it never happened. He is inspirational.

    As for Mr. Finance Buzz’s comment, frankly, I can’t wait for a truly liberal candidate. I also can’t wait for a time when people realize “liberal” is not an epithet.
