Campaign Spotlight: Support Open Primaries in Oregon - Vote YES on Ballot Measure 90
Over 650,000 registered voters in Oregon are shut of voting in primary elections. That means that over 31% of all voters in the state don’t have a say in which candidates will advance to the general election.
You can do something about that. By voting YES on Ballot Measure 90 you can give everyone a say.
Replacing party primaries with open primaries will allow voters to make decisions based on a candidate’s merit and ideas, rather than their party affiliation.

Please vote YES on Measure 90. Use your vote to give everyone the right to vote.
On November 4th, Oregonians will be voting on Ballot Measure 90. We need to reach voters to approve this measure, and provide Oregon with a powerful opportunity to let everyone’s voice be heard. Here’s how you can help:
