Oregon voters, you've outdone yourselves! Late this afternoon, just a few minutes shy of the 5 pm voter registration deadline, election officials announced a new record
: the number of registered Oregonians had climbed to 2,143,290
, surpassing the record set in 2004, when 2,141,249 Beaver State residents registered for the general election. Ballots start going out October 17—now all that's left to do is make certain that you're registered
, and, oh right, vote.
