We think democracy is a great. And Oregon does democracy pretty well… Motor Voter, vote-by-mail, and online voter reg are a few examples of how Oregon has lead the way on voter access.
We also recognize democracy, in order to work at its best, needs a little help, a little attention and support from people like you and me. Even with these innovative voter access policies in place, there are still tons of Oregonians who face barriers to the ballot and there are still places where Oregon can improve.
That’s why this legislative session, we’re continuing to make voter access a priority with bills on:
~ Pre-voter registration for 16 year olds ~
~ Paid Postage on ballots ~
~ In-language tools for minority-language voters ~
~ National Popular Vote ~
You can take action to help ensure democracy is working for all Oregonians by joining us on March 8th for our Democracy Day of Action at the Capitol! Transportation and lunch will be provided.
