Note: Oregon has 100 percent vote by mail.  Ballots are mailed out any time between the 14th and 18th days before election; "election day" is thus more drawn out than in some states.   During this period the campaign sent people to the 36 county courthouses to keep track of who had voted; people who had voted could then be removed from the contact list.  The idea was to get as many people as possible to vote early as this allowed more attention to be focused on those less committed voters later on.
