Deschutes County voters are turning in their ballots at a slightly lower pace, just like the state wide ballot returns.

 

Deschutes County Clerk Nancy Blankenship says they've received about 37% of ballots back so far; but with more drop boxes opening up, that number will rise pretty quickly.  "We've seen a lot of activity.  It’s a high-interest election and so people are very interested and they want to participate.  That’s some of the comment's they're making 'Oh, this is very important, I need to make sure I can vote.'  So it's been exciting to see people anxious make sure they've got their ballot."

 

Blankenship says it's too late to mail in your ballot, so you should take you ballot to a drop box.  Several are open now and all of the drop boxes will open on Friday. You can click on the "Vote" button (below) for drop box locations. 

 

Jefferson County ballot returns is about 42% and Crook County is almost 44% as of Wednesday night.
