My Republican Party primary ballot arrived in May. Despite my extreme displeasure with the Republican Party, I am still a registered Republican. Upon looking over the ballot I realized that there was no one running in one of the Precinct Committee Person slots. Hmm... curious.
So after voting for Ron Paul, I giggled, and wrote my name in the empty slot. I then told my parents, who proceeded to write my name in on their ballots, then called Nana and Grandpa and told them to do the same. Yesterday I got a letter in the mail from the county clerk.
"You are hereby notified of your election to the office of Precinct Committee Person to the precinct indicated on the above label, Lane County, Oregon, at the Primary Election duly held in said County and Stare on the 20th of May 2008, in accordance with ORS Chapter 248. THIS IS YOUR CERTIFICATE OF ELECTION PLEASE RETAIN. Witness my hand and seal this 9th day of June 2008."
I'm rather surprised, but looking forward to whatever my job entails.
