Voting in Oregon

Dear Readers,

Oregon conducts elections entirely by mail, so the specific address of voters is pretty important.  As a result, there is a (I believe entirely unique) question about it on the Secretary of State's website:

Can I register to vote if I am homeless?
Yes, if you are a US citizen, an Oregon Resident and at least 17 years of age. Your residence address may be any place you sleep within the county. You must describe the physical location where you sleep. A homeless person may use the mailing address of the county elections official of the county in which the person is located.

See:, as of 01/20/2012.

This is just an interesting rule; so far, I have not seen any others like it.
