Long Voting Line in Oregon
We've had vote-by-mail for years. It works. For those who don't get their ballot in the US Mail on time to be delivered by election day, or like dropping it in a box by hand (as I do), there are drop off boxes in convenient locations. The system increases voter turnout and more informed voting. That is why "conservatives" don't like it. - it interferes with their schemes to suppress votes through fake voter fraud I.D. campaigns and lessens their chances of winning. Voter fraud is very rare. increased voter I.D. requirements, and district election day in-person voting, suppress voting by people who move frequently (students, young people), people without driver's licenses (poor, minorities), those who can't miss work to vote, etc. all of whom tend to vote more liberal.
I completed my lengthy ballot at my dining room table with the aid of a stack of resource materials and good coffee.
This is also the 100 year anniversary of (some) women winning the right to vote in Oregon! Conservatives have never liked that idea much either. Women immediately began supporting progressive legislation on minimum wage, child welfare, and public health.
I don't know if this qualifies as "street photography". It doesn't show any down-and-out people. It isn't in black and white, and it doesn't look like the 1940s in an old industrial city. It is a candid street shot of a diversity of ordinary people doing something that is very important to them and very significant.
