Around 13,000 contested ballots WERE NOT COUNTED in the November 4th election in Oregon.  Voters have until WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 19th to fix any problems with contested ballots.

A recount is automatically triggered if the margin on any item is within 4,000 votes.  This could have an impact on Measure 92, where the margin between No votes and Yes votes is around 7,500 at last count.

KBOO spoke with Tony Green of the Oregon Secretary of State's office for more on the 13,000 contested ballots.

Holy Crowley 2 hour special

program date: 
Fri, 11/14/2014
Many of our late-night deejays have been accused of belonging to a cult led by Aleister Crowley. That's only half right. We're member of a cult, and this cult is led by a Crowley, however, it's not Aleister. Rather it’s his brother Carl. Carl Crowley. Carl is Aleister’s little-known brother, and that’s just the way he wants it.

We say and play what Carl Crowley tells us to say and play. It’s fortunate for you, the listener, that he has a good sense of humor. We'll be playing radio comedy and odd audio pieces that are good for a few laughs. I think you’ll enjoy it. And, if I were you, I'd enjoy it 57:38 minutes (23.09 MB)
