Postcards should arrive this week in nearly one million Oregon mailboxes. They’re promoting a higher turnout in November’s election. But they’re not being sent in support of a political party or candidate.
Lane County spokeswoman Anne Marie Levis says the postcards will come from the Secretary of State’s office. They’ll contain instructions on how to register to vote:
Levis: “It’s a statewide effort to people who, through multiple different data bases, seem as if they’re not a registered voter and try to get them to register and be able to vote.”
