Oregon is one of the states. We do 100% vote-by-mail, but you can also opt to use one of the ballot drop boxes in your area or your county elections office.  This is a nomination primary for offices like governor, secretary of state, etc., but since we do closed primaries only registered Democrats and Republicans receive ballots. The winners of this election will appear on the ballots for the General Election on November 8, 2022.

Our primary is the 7th of June. I've already filled out at least half of my ballot. We usually like to walk our ballots over to the voting center in a local neighborhood park. It has open hours starting the Saturday before election day. I'm pretty sure that drop boxes are already available, too.

I'm non-affiliated so I got to vote for exciting things like circuit court judges (running unopposed) and county commissioners.  Turnout's extremely low this cycle.  We mailed our ballots and I confirmed on the county website that my ballot was received, so I'm glad to have done my civic duty even if it doesn't appear that many people did.  Although it's a little of a change from previous cycles, where you used to have to have the ballot in by end of election day, and now it's postmarked on or before election day, so maybe they're all hanging on to their ballots until the last minute.  We did have a couple of glitches this time--Clackamas County ballots had a printing issue (https://www.clackamas.us/news/2022-05-04/ballots-with-defective-barcodes-identified-as-problem-increased-work-for-county-election-personnel-expected) and someone stole a whole damn mailbox (https://www.wweek.com/news/2022/05/16/elections-officials-report-stolen-portland-mailbox-may-have-contained-some-ballots/, suspiciously adjacent to Reed College--farkin' Reedies).

https://www.nytimes.com/2022/05/17/us/politics/jan-6-committee-transcripts.html

WASHINGTON - The Justice Department has asked the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack for transcripts of interviews it is conducting, which have included discussions with associates of former President Donald J. Trump, according to people with knowledge of the situation.

The move, coming as Attorney General Merrick B. Garland appears to be ramping up the pace of his painstaking investigation into the Capitol riot, is the clearest sign yet of a wide-ranging inquiry at the Justice Department.

The House committee has interviewed more than 1,000 people so far, and the transcripts could be used as evidence in potential criminal cases, to pursue new leads or as a baseline text for new interviews conducted by federal law enforcement officials.

Aides to Representative Bennie Thompson, Democrat of Mississippi and the chairman of the committee, have yet to reach a final agreement with the Justice Department on what will be turned over, according to a person with knowledge of the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the confidential nature of the investigations.

On April 20, Kenneth A. Polite Jr., the assistant attorney general for the criminal division, and Matthew M. Graves, the U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia, wrote to Timothy J. Heaphy, the lead investigator for the House panel, advising him that some committee interviews "may contain information relevant to a criminal investigation we are conducting."

Ours is next week.

I don't get to vote for a Dem candidate for the House as we don't even have a single one running against Vicky Hartzler (MAGAt extraordinaire).

I am voting for Dr Gena Ross for the Senate though.

I just really hope that no matter what Grietens loses.

Ah! That's where I left my bucket!

Been trying to figure out an optimal site for penultimate shed, and I think it will involve breaking up a bit of concrete poured by N-2th owner. Sledge hammers start at around 40 bucks, and I haven't seen a single one on craigslist closer than 50 miles away.

But, joy! Yesterday someone was giving away two - an eight pound and a ten-pound. Score!

25 years ago carville was useful and interesting now he is the old guy that babbles about how they used to do things back in the day. Carville and old arse  Dems are the reason Dems don't run effective national campaigns. The base is younger and more liberal and not just old fashioned corporate Dems carville backs.

Kentucky Primary election has been this time of year my entire life (well, except COVID they pushed a few weeks).  Every 2022 office is on the ballot from Senator to Constable, which actually means my Presidential vote never counts because it's also this time of year.

The ballots went to paper for the first time in a long time, I like that except the bubbles are so farking big.  But the registration went the opposite direction.  I did a digital signature on a tablet for the voter "roll" which I guess goes in parenthesis now that it's no longer a book.
