Down the Ballot...again.

The Election is 52 days away. The third election this year for those of us in my area. I had agreed to do another exhibit of political memorabilia at my university, WOU, for the fall. 

Here is part of it in the process of being set up on the 2nd floor lobby area. The case has mostly 2012 and 2014 items. I enjoy collecting this stuff and it is sorta fun to share it with others. The election is coming and organizing for 2016 is already starting.

The main party of the display not pictured centers around candidates from Western Oregon University. There were some surprises in researching for this display. WOU has two U.S. Senators associated with it. Maurine Neuberger and George W. McBride. I thought it was cool to find out that George McBride was the first native Oregonian to serve in the U.S. Senate. A PM in the Canadian Parliament, and a former Alaskan State Senator also were uncovered.

There were many candidates for local office in Monmouth and Polk County too. If you get the chance to visit the WOU Library; go have yourself a look.
