are complete and sitting in our mail room. Today, we contacted a local
mail distribution company (Dillion) and they are picking up all the

prior to the April 1st deadline. The ballots are due back by May 20th at
So, the bottom line is that the Oregon SM election is still on as
scheduled. Please take the time to vote!
73 and stay safe!
