Election Draws Near

Ballots are slowly being returned to county election offices for the May 21 special districts election.  The Hood River County elections office reported on Tuesday afternoon that 17.6 percent of ballots had been returned, while Wasco County was at 13.42 percent at the end of Tuesday.  Election officials say Wednesday is the last day to mail ballots.  After Wednesday they recommend delivering them to County election offices or designated official drop boxes to meet the May 21 deadline.  Also, Wasco County Clerk Lisa Gambee issued a reminder that it’s a Class C Felony to sign another person’s ballot.  If you get all the way to the ballot drop box and realize your spouse or family member forgot to sign the envelope, take it back home to them.
