Beaverton, Oregon - written May 19, mid-afternoon local time

People are voting in a steady stream and the ballot collectors are making it easy. There are all sorts of volunteer workers manning the voting tables. Obviously, I don't know how people are voting, but I have heard people asking if it is too late to register as a Democrat for the primary (yes it is), and this is probably a good sign for Senator Clinton. Generally, the crossovers in places like Beaverton - a suburb of Portland - have broken for Clinton. Example: the suburbs of Philadelphia. I do know for a fact that many, many people in this county near Portland did register as Democrats, switching from Independent or Republican. The demographics of the county suggest that these are switchers for Clinton, so this information is very positive.

Heidi, I just want to thank you for all that you are doing for Senator Clinton in Oregon. My husband and I drove from Idaho to Portland to help out this past weekend, but we had to leave on Sunday to go back to work on Monday. Thank you so very much for staying. Regarding support in the suburbs of Portland, we did a honk-and-wave before a Bill Clinton event in Milwaukie on Saturday, and the response was *overwhelmingly* positive! 2 rude BO supporters, but almost ALL the passing cars gave a honk and thumbs up! I was so encouraged and had an absolute BLAST!!! Did not see much support on the ground for Sen. Obama in Portland, but Hillary canvassers were everywhere (Farmer's market, asian event, downtown Portland, etc.) leaving their mark with signs and stickers. Anyway, sorry this comment is getting so long, but I want you to know that I really really appreciate everything that you do. Let's put Oregon in the HRC win column tomorrow!!!
