We’re here to make sure you get the clear information you need to cast your ballot, and get it submitted before the November 8 deadline.
Ballots are hitting voters’ mailboxes today, which means Oregonians will soon be making decisions that have the potential to fundamentally transform the places we live and work.
Most people agree that significant change of this kind is only possible when voters are educated and able to make informed decisions. We’re here to make sure you get the clear information you need to cast your ballot.
For a decade, Our Oregon has produced Voter Guides to provide simple, clear, and accurate information about the ballot measures Oregonians vote on. Over the years, voters have told us they appreciate these concise guides, because it can be difficult to sift through campaign messages and advertisements and get reliable information about what’s on the ballot. It has always been Our Oregon’s goal to help you get to the heart of the matter and get the facts you need to make an informed vote, and 2016 is no different.
This year’s ballot is a testament to the great work of the countless Oregonians who organized around the issues they are passionate about in an effort to improve the state. From protecting wildlife species and expanding outdoor school to improving services for veterans, we have the chance to make Oregon a better place to live for everyone.
There is one measure on this year’s ballot that has the potential to be a game-changer, more so than any other measure we can vote on this year. That’s Measure 97, which asks large corporations to pay their fair share here, so we can invest in education and other services that Oregon families rely on.
This year, we have the opportunity to make Oregon a better place to live and work. Please, review the Our Oregon Voter Guide before you cast your ballot — and make sure to submit it before November 8th.
