The Oregon mail-in voting model

Sounds right to me:

1. My ballot and voter's pamphlet arrived by mail about three weeks ahead of election day.

2. My ballot could be mailed in at any time, or dropped off at a community collection center during the week preceding the election. I opted for this and dropped my ballot off at a neighborhood grocery store last Wednesday. I got a round of applause from the volunteers when I walked in, ballot in hand. I voted, bought myself a cookie from the bakery, and was done in five minutes.

3. I went online yesterday and verified that my ballot had been received by my county auditor's office.
