If/when you present another Think Out Loud program on the November election (such as the 10/25 one on Multnomah County), please tell your audience about an excellent new source of voter information sponsored by the League of Women Voters. Voters who go to VOTESOURCE.org, find the BUILD MY BALLOT block, and type in their address and zip code, will see information on the ballot choices for their area.
In Multnomah County, the information includes local races and ballot measures (down to the Water Districts), in Ashland, it includes the City Council races; in Clackamas County, the County races; and for other communities in Oregon, people will see information on the state-wide ballot measures and candidates.
VOTESOURCE uses the same format as the Oregonian’s on-line voter guide, but we believe that the League’s information is better and more comprehensive. (Both sites have gaps where some candidates chose not to submit responses.) The balanced, hype-free League information should be a valuable resource for voters who want to know more about their choices this fall. Thank you for helping us spread the word about this valuable resource.
