Election Day is here


If you haven’t put your ballot for today's primary election in the mail, don’t.

It’s too late.

If you want your vote to count, you’ll need to bring your ballot to the Courthouse, 1995 Third St. in Baker City, or slip the envelope into one of the county’s other ballot drop boxes, by 8 p.m. 

The list:

• County Clerk’s office, Suite 150 in the Courthouse, open today until 5 p.m., and Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

• Drive-up drop box on the west side (Fourth Street) of the Courthouse, open 24 hours

• Community Connection of Baker County Senior Center, 2810 Cedar St. in Baker City, open today until 5 p.m., and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

• Halfway City Hall, open today until 4 p.m., and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

• Huntington City Hall, open today until 4 p.m., and Tuesday from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.

• Richland City Hall, open today until 3 p.m., and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Baker City Herald’s endorsements for Tuesday’s primary:

• Baker County Commission Chairman: Fred Warner Jr.

• Baker County Commission Position 2: Mark Bennett

The Herald has not endorsed a candidate in the three-person race for Baker County Clerk because it’s likely that two of the three candidates — Marcy Osborn, Cindy Carpenter and Lara Petitclerc — will advance to November’s general election.

That will happen unless one of the three candidates gets more than 50 percent of the total votes cast Tuesday.

Although this year’s primary has been one of the most competitive — and expensive — local races in years, in particular the contest between incumbent Fred Warner Jr. and Bill Harvey for Baker County Commission chairman, voter turnout as of this morning was just 32.8 percent.

We hope that percentage is substantially higher by the time the final ballot is tallied Tuesday night.
