Just voted!

Ran into not one, not two, but THREE No On One canvassers doing Get Out The Vote work on my walk from Congress Street to the East End Community School. This is what matters, on Election Day.

Steady stream of voters there, but no lines to speak of. Kevin Donoghue and Charles Bragdon are both shaking hands outside. 

Secretary of State Matt Dunlap is estimating 50 percent turnout, which is unheard of on off-election years (Tweeters are warning other tech-savvy folks to stop tweeting about high turnout lest they discourage people from heading to the polls). More than 20 volunteers are counting the record number of absentee ballots at Portland's City Hall.

Keep up here, here, and here. And here, once the polls close.
