At around 21%, it's a very low voter turnout so far but Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship says the whole state is low. Blankenship says the one problem she's seeing with those ballots they have already received is lack of a signature: "Just make sure that voters remember to sign their ballots before they turn them in. And we do get a few folks that are trying to do their spouse a favor, that may have difficulties with signing, and because they have power of attorney over other things, have signed their ballot for their spouse, and that doesn't work for voting. The actual voter has to sign their ballot. So if there are any questions, they can call out office; there are things we can do to assist them." Blankenship says all counties seems to be reporting that there is voter apathy right now, and that's not unusual for a primary, but there are some hot races that should have voters excited. The voters pamphlet and the clerk's website lists all locations of the drop boxes, and several are open 24 hours.
