government oregon elections 2004

Line closed at the election office

The line has been cut off for the election. Many people did not get into line in time. Some pro-Bush people are monitoring the line, making sure people don't jump in or leave.
An PDX IMC reporter is getting interviews with voters in the line waiting outside the election office. One person said they just made it there on time, from Fairview to downtown Portland in seven minutes. Most of the people at the end of the line that were interviewed were Kerry enthusiasts. One person jumped out of a moving vehicle right near the deadline to make it there on time, only to struggle to find the end of the line and miss getting in by minutes.
