Voter Registration for the Primary

Reminder that the last day to register to vote in the May primary is April 29th..

If you are switching party affiliation, your form must be IN by the 29th - so take it to the Election office - do not mail it.

First time registrants - it can be postmarked on the 29th but it's probably still safest to take it into the election office.

Address is

Director of Elections
1040 SE Morrison St.
Portland, OR 97214-2495
(503) 988-3720

Wrong-Way Fish

Yesterday there was a fish - identified as a steel head trout lying near the bank - looking pretty ill.

The fishermen in the area told us it was spawned out and the spots were decaying flesh - but that if it swam out to the ocean it would perk back up [my word - not theirs]

But when it finally started moving - it was swimming toward Idaho : - 0

Hopefully it got out into the main channel and got a current ride to the Pacific...
