Paul Newman & Garth Brooks running for office?

Voters in one Oregon county are being asked to choose between Paul Newman and Garth Brooks.

The superstars appear on the March 11th ballot in an election for national director of entertainment.

It's actually a $10,000 dry run for Yamhill County's new voting system.

Officials hope the mock election will work out any kinks in the optical scanner vote counters and software.

The system will be used for the first time in an election May 20th, when the votes will count.
