All in all, I think the voting process here in Oregon must be one of the best. For the past decade or so, all elections have been strictly vote-by-mail. A few weeks before the election, we receive the ballots in the mail. You use a number two pencil to fill in the bubbles. Then you drop in in the mail, or wait until polling day and drop it off at a library or government office.

I get a kick out of that civic feeling, too, so I always drop mine off at the booth at Pioneer Square, "Portland's Living Room." There's no waiting in line, no running out of ballots, and no poll workers to discourage you from writing in candidates.
