I turned in my ballot for the Oregon Midterm election today.
Some of my votes include:
💛 Libra Forde for Clackamas County Commissioner, Position 2
💛 Sonya Fischer for Position 5
💛 Jamie McLeod-Sk8nner for US Rep., 5th District
💛 Tina Kotek for Governor
💛 Yes on Measure 112 amending thr constitution to remove language allowing slavery and involuntary servitude as punishment for crime.
💛 Yes on Measure 114 requiring background check, safety training, fee for permit to acquire firearms
💛 Voted against the temporary ban on Psilocybin-related businesses. I voted for this measure to be approved last election and still stand by it.
One of my main focuses was on those that advocate for Women’s Rights, specifically Women’s Right to Choose.
If you’re in the US, I hope you’ll vote tomorrow if you haven’t been able to already. It’s so easy in Oregon, there really is no excuse. I realize it is not this easy everywhere but that is more the reason to get it done. In my opinion, if you have values, you need to care about this election. There’s going to be some tight races so I’ll be glued to the results as they are calculated throughout the night in anticipation of not just Oregon’s future but the Countries as a whole.
I also want to mention that I am beyond ready for this election to be over! The amount of phone calls and texts I’ve received is more than I receive in a year. #Block. Not to mention the waste of paper with all the mailers in my mailbox everyday. I didn’t even look at them, I would throw them straight into the recycler. Then there’s the TV adds. Incessant (and a little hilarious with how brutal they are to one another).
See you on the other side of this friends! I hope it goes the way you want. We all deserve to be happy in this life and my hope is we vote with that in mind.
