See this adorable and civically engaged baby
? She's totally in the tank for Obama. And she's annoyed that, of 436,489 registered voters in Multnomah County, only 283,111 of you had turned in your ballots by 8 am this morning. That 64%
, guys. You can do better!
As soon as turnout tops 80%,
this awesome baby, who belongs to a Willamette Week
employee and is very concerned
about the future of this country, will become happy
. But if it doesn't happen by 8 pm, she will be very upset!
Don't disappoint the baby. Vote! Here's a list of official dropsites.

As of noon today, we're only up to 69% turnout. The awesome baby is alert, but still worried. Vote!
UPDATED 3:15 PM:
We're up to 72%—better, but still 12% below last year's total. The awesome baby clenches her tiny fists in anticipation of many, many of you (52,724, as a matter of fact) dropping off you ballots in the next four hours. Vote! Vote! Vote!
UPDATED 5:30 PM
