Heads up, everybody: There's a special runoff election in Portland today to fill the City Council Position 2 seat that was left vacant after the passing of Commissioner Nick Fish. And while there may be only two names on the ballot (Loretta Smith and Dan Ryan), your vote still means A LOT since this person will be helping make longterm decisions about policing, transportation, equity, where city money goes, and so much more in Portland in the coming years. You can find our endorsement for the City Council Position 2 seat HERE.

Since it won't take long to fill out your ballot, you can focus on getting it into a nearby ballot box before 8 pm tonight (and of course at this point, don't even try to mail it). Want to track your ballot online to make sure it was counted (and get a highly coveted virtual "I Voted" sticker)? Use Multnomah County's handy ballot tracker. Here's the list of official ballot drop sites, courtesy of the Multnomah County Elections office. And again... GET YOUR BALLOT IN BY 8 PM TONIGHT, TUESDAY, AUGUST 11!
