I have updated my posting on Blue Oregon about voter turnout in the current special tax election.
It’s a nice example of very high quality, daily turnout data. There will be one more update before next Tuesday’s election. Obviously, the contest in Oregon is not as nationally consequential as the Massachusetts results, but for this state–and perhaps our neighbor to the south–voter endorsement of tax increases would be quite significant. Voter rejection of these legislative changes would create a fiscal crisis.
We’ll see one another Western state does. Perhaps California will look north for once?
