Users have requested that we bring some organization to the large number of posts being made about the 2008 U.S. Presidential Election in the non-aviation forum. For this reason, we’re creating ‘official’ threads to provide some structure to the overall subject, and make it easier for readers to contribute and follow the various discussions.
Three new threads are being created, including this one. If you want to add a post, please make sure you’re adding it to the most appropriate of the choices shown below:
➊ U.S. Election – Presidential Race & Results
➋ U.S. Election – Senate/House Race & Results
➌ U.S. Election – Electoral Process & State Races (this thread)
Examples of content appropriate for this thread:
Governor races and state office contests only. Comments & concerns about the Electoral process. Voter fraud and/or voter suppression, etc.

According to the Oregonian, more than 1,000,000 ballots have been returned as of Monday night. We have a law on the books that if there is a tax increase measure brought to the people, if less than 50% of ballots returned, every non-vote on the tax measure is counted as a no vote. If more than 50% of ballots are returned, the non-votes on the tax measure are simply not counted. We have a measure on this year's ballot to do away with that law. Also, the last poll from yesterday showed Jeff Merkley (D) with a slight lead over incumbant Gordon Smith (R) in the race for Senate.
