Any other questions?

We are not making this up; it is actually from a story on page C3 of The Oregonian, Nov. 8, by Don Colburn

Unlike previous years when deputy sherriffs took ballots from motorists, deputies said they were told not to touch ballots because they are not election workers.

Volunteers who were not election workers were collecting ballots from motorists in large plastic tubs labeled "unofficial" about a block a way from the Multnomah County election headquarters. The volunteers, allied with Oregon AFL-CIO, then carried the full boxes to the elections office.

"Everything we're doing is legal," said Oregon AFL-CIO President Tom Chamberlain. "We just want to make sure everybody who wants to votes."
