Turnout sees last minute push

About 20 minutes before the "polls" closed here in Deschutes County, it was announced that turnout had jumped to 42.2 percent.

Others here at the county offices said it was one of the busiest last days for dropping off ballots.

Won't see first results until about 8:15 p.m., if were lucky. Usually we don't see anything until around 8:30 p.m. in our vote-by-mail system, which we've had for a decade in Oregon.

New rules, though, let the clerk's office to get a jump on counting, which means results could come quicker.
