- Congressional & State primaries: Closed

Earlier this year Oregon Open Primaries collected the initial slate of signatures needed for the “Free and Equal Elections” initiative, a groundbreaking proposed constitutional amendment calling for all voters to be free to vote in every publicly funded election. The initiative was validated by Oregon’s Elections Division and given a certified ballot title by the OR Attorney General. In early May, the Democratic Party affiliated group Our Oregon filed an appeal with the Oregon Supreme Court to challenge the ballot title but we’ve recently received news that the Oregon State Supreme Court rejected the appeal and approved the ballot language!
The initiative won’t make the ballot in 2022 unfortunately, but the ballot language is now fully vetted by the courts and the Open Primaries Oregon team is already building for a 2024 campaign.
