Gov. Kate Brown, others make last-minute rush to the ballot box

Election Day is here: Final day to vote

PORTLAND, Ore. – Thousands of people across Oregon are making a last-minute push on Election Day to turn in their ballots.

Rachel Clark dropped her ballot off at the ballot box at Pioneer Courthouse Square, with help from her dog Blitz.

“A big sense of relief, just to finally get it in there, and looking forward to watching it all day long,” she said. “It’s kind of an exciting day, maybe one of the most exciting election days in a long, long time.”

You have until 8 p.m. in Oregon and Washington to drop your ballot in a ballot box. It’s too late to mail in your ballot in Oregon, but you can do so if you live in Washington, where it must be postmarked by today.

Governor Kate Brown also took the opportunity to cast her ballot in downtown Portland.

“I usually hang on to my ballot until the end, so yes, I’m probably a last minute voter,” Brown said. “I’m in Multnomah County right now. I know there are thousands of Oregon voters waiting till the last minute. I’m very glad people are taking the opportunity to have their voice be heard.”

Bud Pierce, also running for Oregon’s Governor, is also voting today.

Many voters droped off their ballot while documenting it on social media.
