Save great rides: Drop off your ballot today

Posted by on November 6th, 2007 at 11:48 am

Just a final reminder to vote yes on Measure 49. This is our chance to save Oregon and save open spaces (that just so happen to be great places to ride a bike.)

Ballots are due by 8:00pm tonight so the mail is no use. You’ll have to take your ballot to an official drop-off location.

Don’t know where one is? The fine folks at The Bus Project have made this handy Google Map:

Vote.

Thanks for the reminder!

If someone you know needs more convincing, here\’s a great little tool for browsing Measure 37 claims.

I\’m really sorry I didn\’t get more active on this issue sooner.

We could use some stickers or shirts that say \”I Bike and I Vote.\”

Not at the library, but I believe you can get one at your county\’s elections office.

Multnomah County: 1040 SE Morrison Street

Clackamas County (link)

Washington County:

3700 SW Murray Blvd. Suite 101, MS 3
Beaverton, OR 97005

Like Bicycledave said, you can go to the county office to fill out a new registration card and get a ballot on the spot. You\’ll need your current Oregon driver\’s license (or ID card, presumably) and you have to have been registered in Oregon previously. If you\’ve voted or have received a ballt in Oregon before, you can still vote in this election.

I was just at the Multnomah county office to drop off some ballots from my coworkers. They had plenty of staff on hand to take care of all the last-minute voters.

Go do it! You have until 8 pm! And thanks for voting!

Here\’s a Yes on 49 YouTube video…

\”A last-minute plea to Oregon voters to get down to your local ballot drop-off point (myself I prefer the library), and vote yes on Measure 49. Help keep Oregon livable and sustainable!\”

You can forward it to someone you know who needs to be browbeat (in a nice way) into voting yes on 49. 🙂

I voted. I got a kick out of it. I almost always do.

I asked quite a few people today – \”Did you vote?\”

Too many people replied – \”Huh?\”

No more profiteering from destroying Oregon\’s liveability!

M49 was approved. That makes for some relief from development pressure, but don\’t rest too easily. Everyone that cares about Oregon lands and livability in Oregon better continue preparing themselves to understand and address issues related to land use and land ownership rights that will continue to assert themselves with ever greater pressure than has been seen to date.

Property owners that believe they\’ve been getting the short end of the stick as a result of Oregon land use protection measures are going to come back fighting like a nest of angry hornets. In fact, I think they have at least a little justification for that anger. Oregon needs a much more coherent land use policy than it has now, one that encompasses future growth compatibly with the quality of life unique to Oregon, highly valued by those that reside here.
