Last minute turnout slows count in Oregon

I’ve been lauding the Oregon elections system this year, since they begin to count ballots so early (12:01 AM) and because only 15% of ballots (on average) come in on election day.

Nothing like being proved wrong by facts! A surge in last minute turnout has meant that 10% of the by mail ballots in Oregon have yet to be counted.
