One Wild Crazy Month Ahead! Can We Count on your Help?

Hello!

The voter registration deadline in Oregon is rapidly approaching. Did you know there are SEVEN days left to register. That’s only one week, folks! If you haven’t had the chance, go to beregistered.org and update your registration asap! Please share the link with your friends on social media, as well, to make sure we get as many folks registered as possible!

Also, did you know this year the Bus Project printed 50,000 voter guides that we are going to distribute to young voters all across the state? We provided our recommendations on almost all of the statewide ballot measures, which can be viewed here:

With election day upon us, we’ve got 50,000 voter guides that we’ll be using to help young voters get the info they need to show up to vote! After months of debate, we’ve got recommendations on the statewide ballot measures and local Portland measures here:

CANVASS FOR SAFE ROADS: 10/18

The Bus Project is proud to support Measure 88, which will provide a legal pathway for all Oregon residents to obtain a drivers’ card. We’re really stoked to be working closely with Causa Oregon, Center for Intercultural Organizing, Basic Rights Oregon, Oregon Walks and many other organizations to support this pragmatic, progressive policy for immigrants’ rights. Join us Saturday, October 18 in Southeast Portland as we knock on doors and tell our neighbors and our community why it’s vitally important to vote Yes on 88. Details here on our Facebook Page.
