From The Oregonian:
Bob Packwood might be on to something.
Speaking to the Portland City Club last month, the former U.S. senator declared that all elections in Oregon should be nonpartisan and that voters will eventually grow tired of partisan bickering.
I think we’re there now. I know I am.
Reports are that nearly 650,000 eligible Oregon residents are not registered to vote. Nationwide, voting numbers peaked in the 1960s and haven’t reached those levels since.
